Shannon Hills Murder Investigation

A man was murdered in Shannon Hills this morning.
SHANNON HILLS, AR -- For the first time in six years, Shannon Hills police are investigating a homicide.

Shannon Hills is in Saline County.

Police would only tell us the victim -- a man in his 40's -- was shot inside his home on Skyline Drive.

So far they've made no arrests in this case.

Around 10:30 this morning, a shooting disrupted the silence in the quiet neighborhood.

Crystal Thornton said, "Next thing I know two other police cars pulled up and I was like 'Oh my God, something happened!'"

Police say they found the body of a man in his 40's inside the home.

Neighbor Eugene Miller says the victim was a nice man who loved the Razorbacks and Independence Day.

He said, "For the 4th of July, him and his buddies bought a whole bunch of stuff and had firecrackers out there and had a fireworks show and stuff like that."

So, neighbors are confused tonight about who would've murdered this man and police aren't giving many answers either.

Officers did say this is likely an isolated event, so people in the neighborhood are not in danger.
