Update: Teen Shot in Garland Co. Remains in Hospital

GARLAND COUNTY, Ark. - A 15-year-old boy shot in a Thursday night incident is reported in serious but stable condition.

A medical helicopter rushed him to the hospital from the scene on Fernwood Street.

On Friday, people who live in the neighborhood shared their reaction to the violence in their normally quiet area.

"It sounded like three or four shots, it sounded like someone knocking over a trash can honestly," said Christa Penn. "Looked outside the window and there were police and ambulance."

"No problems whatsoever. First time it's ever occurred in this area," added Dianna Bates.

"You hear about it sometimes in Hot Springs or closer to town but not out here," Penn continued.

"This is not the norm at all," Bates said.
