State police: 3 dead, including deputy, in rural Arkansas

Investigators determined that a suspect was in a home near those bodies, and negotiators were trying to contact the suspect Thursday afternoon. Bowden is now being held at the Conway County facility, he said. Sadler said Bowden let one female hostage go during the standoff and she is being questioned. For the past five years, he worked for the Yell County Sheriff's Office. He had been heading to check on a call about a disturbance.

It appears, at least preliminarily, that the deaths of the Yell County sheriff's deputy and the two other victims are connected, Sadler said.

Police identified them as 61-year-old Rita Miller and 17-year-old Ciera Miller. Authorities say the scene is considered very risky and lockdowns have been put in place.

The Arkansas State Police say the suspect in the killing of a sheriff's deputy and two other people has been taken into custody. More definitive information about the suspect's identification will be released today, he said.

Lt. Kevin C. Mainhart was shot after he made a traffic stop on Highway 27 near the junction of Slo Fork Road around 7:15 a.m. after spotting a vehicle believed to be associated with an earlier disturbance call, according to KARK-TV.

A statement from state police said Mr Mainhart had been an officer in Yell County for five years.

Yell County Deputies and Arkansas State Police identified a location where a suspect is believed to be located.

Authorities have released the name of a sheriff's deputy who was gunned down during a traffic stop in Arkansas.

Yell County Sheriff Bill Gilkey said that Mainhart was a great father and husband, as well as being an excellent officer. The authorities haven't confirmed that and the state police declined to say how the Millers and McHam were related. A civilian saw that the deputy had been shot and notified police.
