Man arrested in connection to Fayetteville shooting

UPDATE: 20-year-old Jarren Brown allegedly threatened to kill victims inside the home.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Officers with the Fayetteville Police Department responded to a shooting Friday (Jan. 15) night.

According to Sgt. Tony Murphy with FPD, around 9:40 p.m. officers, responded to the area of Bradstreet Lane and Keats Drive in reference to a shooting.

Upon arrival, they found an 18-year old male victim who had sustained a gunshot wound in his butt.

The victim was taken to a local hospital in stable condition. Their identity has not been released.

On Saturday (Jan. 16) Jarren Brown, 20, was arrested in connection to the shooting.

According to a preliminary report, witnesses told officers that Brown had come to the house about an hour before the shooting. They said he was not allowed to come inside, so he left and sent them a message with a picture of a gun and threatened to return and kill them.

Brown and two others returned to the home and began shooting, according to the report. 

One victim told police she felt Brown was "shooting towards her to kill her."

As Brown was shooting towards the house, someone inside the home picked up an AR-15 rifle and returned fire in self-defense. The male who shot in self-defense told police that he saw a second person shooting rounds towards the house, and that was who was shot in the butt. 

Brown is being charged with engaging in violent criminal activity, aggravated assault, and a terroristic act. 

The investigation is still ongoing.
