At Least 2 Police Officers Shot In Western Arkansas

At least two police officers were shot in western Arkansas on Wednesday morning. And authorities haven't arrested a suspect.

According to local media, the shooting happened around 7:15 a.m. One of the officers shot is reportedly a county deputy, and the other is believed to be the chief of police for the town of Hackett.

Both officers were transported to a local hospital, but their conditions have yet to be released.

The Sebastian County Sheriff's Office told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette the officers responded to an unspecified call for service at a house in Sebastian County when the shooting happened.

As of Wednesday morning, police say they believe the shooter is inside that home. Law enforcement and a SWAT team are currently on the scene.
