ARKANSAS (Dispatches) – Two people are dead and another was wounded in a series of shootings Friday in Conway, U.S. State of Arkansas, police said.
The suspect shot three people at separate locations within minutes of each other, and was captured hours later after he shot himself, police said, NBC News reported.
Officers discovered a wounded 25-year-old woman shortly before 5 p.m., and were then called to two other shooting reports, where they found a 48-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man dead at separate locations, police said in a statement.
About 8 p.m., a 32-year-old suspect was chased by Arkansas State Police, ran into some woods and “was located in a field a short distance away with a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” about 8:30 p.m., police said in the statement.
Police said the suspect was transported to a medical facility, but his condition was not specified.
The wounded woman was airlifted by helicopter to a hospital in Little Rock, around 20 miles away. Her condition was not disclosed.
The identities of the victims were not released.
Police said earlier Friday that all three victims were believed to have been known to the suspect.
A police spokesperson could not immediately be reached for more details, and the police department did not immediately return an email seeking comment.
Meanwhile, police in the U.S. state of Ohio said three people were wounded in a shooting outside a high school football game Friday night.
A high school student and two adults were wounded and transported to area hospitals after being shot outside the Whitmer High School stadium in West Toledo around 9:30 pm, WTOL-TV reported.
Police said the victims, who were not named, were expected to recover.
Police said two people are in custody following the shooting during the game between Whitmer and Central Catholic High School.
The names of the suspects in custody were not immediately available, AP reported.
Washington Local Schools spokesperson Katie Peters said in a statement that the three victims were the only people hurt during the shooting, the station reported.
“No guests were injured in the evacuation and we could not be prouder of our students, staff, Whitmer fans, and our guests from Central Catholic,” Peters said.
The school district’s security and screening measures were used during the event, Peters said.
