PULASKI COUNTY, AR – Three arrests have been made as sheriff’s deputies investigate a case involving a woman who was reportedly beaten, shot and pushed off a bridge.
The incident was reported on Sunday after the woman was found walking near a bridge in the area of Fortson Road and Highway 89 in north Pulaski County, near the Faulkner County line.
According to a report from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO), the woman was taken to a Conway hospital. There’s no further word on her condition and her name is not being released.
