A 40-year-old woman was found dead Tuesday night in Marion County, and police shot and injured a suspect in her homicide, authorities said.
Flippin officers responded at about 8:40 p.m. to a call about a possible stabbing at the Hillside Apartments, 401 N. 8th St., where they encountered 42-year-old and shot Richard Wayne Hudson Jr., according to police Chief Henry Campfield and a news release by state police.
Campfield said Officer Kenneth Looney, who has been with the department for just over two years, shot Hudson.
Hudson, who is from Glenpool, Okla., was transported to an area hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Police found the body of Kathryn Parker inside an apartment unit, as well as two other people who were treated for injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening.
The department requested state police investigate the homicide and police shooting, the release states. Looney was placed on administrative leave, Campfield said.
