Wounded Ark. officer shoots armed man

Arkansas State Police were investigating an incident Monday in which a police officer reportedly shot a man who refused to drop his weapon, according to Lee Motes, chief deputy with the Hot Spring County
sheriff 's office.

Area firefighters had responded to a report Monday morning of a house fire on Golden Jones Road near Magnet Cove, but were prevented from fighting the fire by an armed man identified as Kenneth Brown, 40, Motes said.

"The suspect evidently was trying to keep them from getting to the fire," Motes said, adding that it was unknown if the property belonged to Brown.
