Deputies were called about a person shot several times at 9500 MacArthur Drive shortly after 8:20 a.m., according to a news release issued Wednesday morning by the Pulaski County sheriff’s office. The shooting victim, whose name wasn’t immediately provided, was in stable condition at a local hospital, the release states.

The suspect in the shooting, 40-year-old Damon Casey of North Little Rock, was located Tuesday afternoon by federal authorities inside a park area at the Buffalo National River and has died, authorities said.

The two men were acquaintances, Pulaski County sheriff’s office spokesperson Lt. Cody Burk said in an email.

The National Park Service requested the assistance of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division on Tuesday, Bill Sadler, state police spokesperson, said in an email.

The death is being investigated by state and federal authorities, the news release states.

CORRECTION: Casey was found and died at the Buffalo National River, according to the Pulaski County sheriff’s office. An earlier version of this story incorrectly described his condition when he was found by authorities.
