Guns Confiscated in Shooting Investigation


A Fort Smith police officer was placed on leave Tuesday, and nine guns of various types were confiscated during the investigation of a shooting incident at about 2 a.m. Tuesday in the Long community, north of Roland. Undersheriff Roger Fuller said the investigation revealed an intoxicated person, identified later as Fort Smith Police Officer Naaman Adcock, fired shots into the walls in his home during an argument with his wife. A child ran to a neighbor's to report the shooting, and the neighbor called police. No one was injured and no arrests were made, Fuller said. It was reported that Adcock was placed on leave, with pay, while an internal investigation was done by the Fort Smith Police Department. A criminal investigation may also take place, it was reported. The two children were in the custody of their mother. In Sequoyah County, the investigation was conducted by the sheriff's office and the State Department of Human Services. "The report was turned over to the district attorney's office, and they will decide what to do next," Fuller said. Stay tuned to KXMX for the latest news, or visit www.kxmx.com.
