One dead after police chase from Fort Smith to Arkoma last night
Law enforcement officials in Leflore County say one man is dead after an incident last night involving a police chase, a rammed police car and shots fired at two suspects in a stolen box truck.
Police followed the truck across state lines into Arkoma from the western edge of Fort Smith. When law enforcement tried to stop the truck, which had a male and female in the driver's cab, the suspect drove the box truck on top of one of the police vehicles.
Police then rammed the truck and shots were fired.
The dead suspect has not been identified and it has not been announced if he died from the shooting or from the vehicle accident that occurred.
No officers were injured during the incident, according to sources.
