HOT SPRINGS, AR – Hot Springs Police searched for a man who threatened to kill himself Tuesday afternoon.
According to reports, around 11:50 a.m. on February 7, officers from the Hot Springs police department responded to a call about a man with a gun at 389 Lake Hamilton Drive. When they arrived, officers found the man in a wooded area behind Hot Springs Mall. The subject reportedly told police that he wanted to kill himself. The area was blocked off as a precaution and a hostage negotiator attempted to talk with the man but was unable to convince him to surrender to police.
Police say a member of the HSPD SWAT team used a less lethal impact round to subdue the man; who was then taken into custody and transported to a local hospital for treatment.
