Shooting leaves two hospitalized

Friday, December 19, 2014

Two people were hospitalized with gunshot wounds after an apparent domestic incident Wednesday night on Carroll County Road 228 north of Holiday Island.

Carroll County Sheriff Bob Grudek said Thursday morning that his office is investigating the incident, which he said "appears to be a domestic."

"We have to conduct a few more interviews, and then we'll give the information to the prosecutor and see if he wants to file charges," Grudek said.

Grudek confirmed that a third person also was shot. A news release from Eureka Springs Fire and Emergency Medical Services said "two trauma patients were transported by EMS to Northwest Medical Center in Bentonville. A third patient declined assistance."

The incident apparently occurred shortly after 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Grudek said he could not release any further details because the investigation is ongoing.
