3 morto e poliziotto accoltellato al collo a Fort Smith, incidente in Arkansas

Tre persone sono morte e un agente di polizia si sta riprendendo da una pugnalata al collo in un incidente in una residenza a Fort Smith, Arkansas, ha detto la polizia.

Un agente di polizia stava rispondendo a un 911 caller Sunday morning who reportedly heard yelling and screaming and then saw a shirtless manassaulting a person on the ground,” Fort Smith Police Chief Danny Baker said in a news conference.
When the officer arrived, the shirtless man was beating his 15-year-old son with a rock in the head and face and, and the officer ordered him to stop, Baker ha detto.
      At first the man seemed to comply, but when the officer approached the man to put him in restraints, the man producedan edged weapon slashing the officer’s throat and neckjust under a minute after the officer arrived, Baker ha detto.
        The officer fired two shots, killing the man, according to Baker. The 15-year-old was pronounced dead after being rushed to the hospital. He had multiple stab wounds and blunt force trauma, disse il capo.
          Other officers found a woman dead from apparent stab wounds and evidence ofan extremely violent attackinside the home.
          A 5-year-old child was also found in the home and is now being cared for by family, Baker ha detto.
          I have no doubt that our officersswift action saved this young child’s life,” Baker ha detto.
          The injured officer was rushed to the hospital with a serious laceration to his throat and neck, disse il capo. He is now in stable condition after emergency surgery.
          Baker said he has asked the Arkansas State Police to take the lead in the investigation because the incident involved an officer firing their weapon at someone.
          The injured officer has been placed on paid administrative leave for a minimum of three days and will remain on leave for as long as needed. A second officer has also been placed on leave, Baker ha detto.
            We’re all left scared, arrabbiato, frustrato, sometimes hopeless. No one believes in the sanctity of life more than the men and women of the Fort Smith Police Department. Each one of us are sworn to protect it at all costs. Così, it hurts us as much as it does each of you when an outcome like this is unavoidable,” Baker ha detto.
            I’m thankful for officers who are willing to put their lives on the line when evil threatens our community. I’m thankful for the medical team, who took care of our officer. And I’m thankful for our community, that always pulls together when tragedy strikes. My heart goes out to all those who have been impacted by this terrible event. Please pray for all of us.
