Two men are dead following a law enforcement officer involved shooting incident outside an England residence this afternoon.
At the request of authorities within the England Police Department, Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division are investigating the shooting. The investigation will be submitted to a prosecuting attorney for consideration.
At approximately 2:15 PM England Police responded to the report of a domestic disturbance involving two men at 422 SE Third Street.
On the arrival of local police an armed man was standing next to another man lying on the ground. As officers made attempts to defuse the armed confrontation the gunman was shot.
The bodies of both men will be transported to the State Crime Laboratory for further examination to assist in the investigation.
