TEEN DIES FOLLOWING OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING AT MARION

July 26, 2017

A teenager wounded outside an emergency shelter for juveniles yesterday (Tuesday, July 25, 2017) died at a Memphis hospital overnight.

The name of the juvenile will be released later today once the Arkansas State Police can confirm all immediate family members have been notified.  

Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division will keep the prosecuting attorney of jurisdiction apprised of their work and will later submit a complete investigative file that will be used by the prosecutor to determine whether use of deadly force by a law enforcement officer was justified as prescribed in Arkansas law.

The release of any information that may identify the names of officers involved in the shooting and their administrative status will be left up to authorities within the Marion Police Department.
