A Stone County Sheriff’s Deputy was shot and killed while on duty at approximately 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 2, 2024. A suspect is in custody.

Stone County Sheriff Brandon Long asked the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division to conduct an investigation and for the Arkansas Department of Public Safety to field media inquiries.

No additional information will be released at this time, but a press conference will be scheduled in Mountain View as soon as possible.

Sheriff Long has asked that prayers be lifted for family, friends and colleagues of the fallen officer.

“We ask that members of the media please give Sheriff Long and the Stone County community the time and space they need to process this devastating moment,” said ASP Colonel Mike Hagar. “Information will be released as it becomes available. Until then, let us all give the Stone County Sheriff’s Office our steadfast support.”
