Police in Northwest Arkansas have arrested a 22-year-old accused of fatally shooting a person and wounding another after an overnight search.

Springdale Police Department Lt. Jeff Taylor said officers arrested Dekota Harvey around 10:30 a.m. Friday at the Applegate Apartments at 5 Applegate Dr.

Fayetteville police said Harvey shot two people, killing one of them, around 9 p.m. Thursday in the 900 block of North Leverett Avenue, just north of the University of Arkansas’ flagship campus.

Further details about the victims and what led up to the shooting weren't immediately released.

Taylor said Harvey briefly holed up inside the Springdale apartments but surrendered to police after negotiating by phone for about 10 minutes.

“He gave up pretty easily once we made contact with him,” Taylor said.

Police said Harvey didn’t have a gun on him during the arrest and it wasn’t immediately clear why he went into the apartments.

Taylor said he didn’t live there.

The Springdale Police Department planned to return Harvey to Fayetteville police.

    I’m guessing ‘good southern folk.’

    “He gave up pretty easily once we made contact with him,” Taylor said.

    To be honest, I can’t tell if Dekota is a male or female.

    What kind of name is dekota? wonder if his baby moma had a husband who lived at home? if so, then is possible that he alone is responsible for his actions instead of bad mouthing his parent? At to religion, is he a poster boy for his default religion? What if he is a follower of DT or he is not?

    Maybe he is just a criminal ,if found guilty that did a very bad thing... we will await the confirmation where by a right winger can tie him into anything to do with the middle to the left.

    The shooting aside, I'm jealous of his hair.
