Arkansas State Police investigate a Friday afternoon officer-involved shooting that left two men dead.

The Arkansas State Police are investigating a Friday afternoon officer-involved shooting in England, officials say.

At about 2:15 p.m., England police responded to a domestic disturbance between two men at 422 SE Third St., Arkansas State Police spokesman Bill Sadler said in an email.

When England officers arrived at the scene, they found an armed man next to another man lying on the ground.

"As officers made attempts to defuse the armed confrontation, the gunman was shot," Sadler said.

The bodies will be transported to the State crime laboratory for examination.

Witnesses outside the residence said Jimmy Foreman, shot his son Dwain Foreman outside the house before officers responded.

Lonoke County property records show Jimmy and Dwain Foreman as owners of the home.
