Teenager wanted by police for homicide that took place last month turns himself in



Arkansas – A shooting incident that took place at 607 School Street in Hot Springs early last month was fatal for one person, while two others were injured. Since then, the Hot Springs Police Department has been looking for a teenager who was named the main suspect in the incident.

As we already reported last month, a 16-year-old male victim was found in the 600 Block of School Street on October 5 by responding officers with several gunshot wounds in critical condition. The victim was immediately transferred to a local hospital for treatment, but despite doctors’ efforts, he later died.

Another teenager, an 18-year-old male, showed up at a local hospital with several gunshot wounds. The injuries were non-life-threatening and his condition was stable. The police department later confirmed that the second victim was part of the same shooting incident. After receiving treatment, he was released from the hospital.

The third victim, a 17-year-old female, was in critical condition after suffering several serious gunshot wounds. She was also injured in the same shooting incident. The third victim was located in a vehicle in the 1200 block of Central Avenue. She was treated at the scene and later taken to a hospital for further treatment. Fortunately, she survived.

A 16-year-old male was named the main suspect in the case. The Hot Springs Police Department has been looking for the suspect until Tuesday, when the suspect turned himself in. Due to his age, we will not reveal his name.

The teenager suspect was wanted on several charges, including murder in the first degree, aggravated robbery, terroristic act x2, and battery in the first degree. The 16-year-old will be charged as an adult.

Local authorities confirmed that the suspect was held on a $750,000 bond and was transported to an undisclosed juvenile detention facility.

Once more details emerge, we will update the case. Stay with us!
