CABOT, Ark. – Authorities say Arkansas officers fatally shot a handcuffed parolee who fired at them from inside a patrol car.
State Department of Community Correction Deputy Director Dina Tyler says 35-year-old Jonathan McIntosh was killed Tuesday in Cabot, 25 miles northwest of Little Rock.
Tyler says ADCC and Lonoke County Sheriff's Department officers detained McIntosh while searching for another suspect.
She says officers found suspected drugs on McIntosh, cuffed his hands behind him and put him in the back of the vehicle. She says McIntosh opened fire when officers returned to interview him.
Tyler says two ADCC officers and one sheriff's department employee shot at McIntosh, who died at a hospital.
She says he somehow got his cuffed hands in front of him and it's unclear where he got the gun.
No officers were injured.
