FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The Fayetteville Police Department (FPD) is investigating an alleged attempted murder after a shooting Thursday, Sept. 30.
According to FPD, multiple calls about a shooting at a residence in Fayetteville came in just before 10 p.m. Thursday night.
When officers arrived, they were made aware that one man was shot and learned the suspect fled the scene. The victim was taken to the hospital by his wife before police arrived.
The man, whose identity has not been released at this time, was taken to an area hospital in critical condition.
19-year-old Tyrece Foreman of Springdale has been arrested on multiple charges including attempted capital murder.
According to a police report, Foreman was upset that he wasn't able to see his child, so he went to the home of his child's mother and shot a family member who answered the door.
The victim stumbled back towards the hallway of the house and pushed a mirror into the path of Foreman.
Foreman then fired a second shot at the victim before fleeing the home. Investigators later found a bullet in the drywall outside of a bedroom that a baby's crib was in. The bullet seemed to be stopped from going through the wall by a 2x4 stud, according to the report.
Police say an investigation led detectives and officers to almost immediately begin looking for Foreman as a suspect in the shooting. He turned himself into the Washington County Jail on Monday, Oct. 4.
He faces charges of attempted capital murder, aggravated residential burglary, and endangering the welfare of a minor.
Police say the victim has been released from the hospital and is expected to survive
No other details surrounding the investigation are known.
