FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — A 17-year-old boy has been shot in the neck in a Friday afternoon incident on the east side of Fayetteville.
Police say a call came in from a neighbor around 1:40 and officers found the victim on the ground near a mailbox on Bryan Lane. There’s no further word on his condition.
“Right now we don’t believe there is a danger to the general public. This is possibly an isolated incident. We’re going to say keep an eye out for anything suspicious and give us a call,” says Cpl. Dallas Brashears with the Fayetteville Police Department.
This is the city’s second shooting in the past two days.
Neighbors we spoke to say this is very uncommon in such a quiet neighborhood.
