Ben­ton Po­lice De­part­ment of­fi­cers re­sponded to a West

Drive res­i­dence just be­fore 9 p.m. Tues­day af­ter re­port of a fe­male vic­tim hav­ing been shot.

Once on scene, of­fi­cers dis­cov­ered the fe­male vic­tim to have two gun­shot wounds to the back, both of which were ob­tained while she was sit­ting on the sofa. She was trans­ported to a nearby hospi­tal, where she is ex­pected to make a full re­cov­ery.

A male sub­ject was ques­tioned at the scene but was also de­ter­mined to be a vic­tim in the in­ci­dent, ac­cord­ing to Krista Petty, spokesper­son for the Ben­ton Po­lice De­part­ment.

Mul­ti­ple spent shell cas­ings were lo­cated on the street as well as mul­ti­ple bul­let holes around the ex­te­rior of the res­i­dence and in the two ve­hi­cles parked on the prop­erty. BNPD Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tions Divi­sion re­sponded to the scene and as­sumed the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, which re­mains on­go­ing.

Ev­i­dence has been col­lected, but no sus­pects are known at this time.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about this in­ci­dent is urged to con­tact the Ben­ton Po­lice De­part­ment at 501-778-1171 or 501-315-TIPS. Anony­mous tips may also be sent via text to CRIMES (274637) with the key­word BNPD in the body of the mes­sage, via the of­fi­cial Ben­ton Po­lice De­part­ment app avail­able on itunes and Google Play or at www.crimere­ports.com.
