Four law enforcement agencies are investigating a shooting at Dermott where a man was killed and his mother was wounded.
Johnny Hayes, 49, of Dermott was killed and his 64-year-old mother, Carolyn Hayes was wounded, according to State Police.
Dermott police received a call around 12:22 a.m. Friday reporting a shooting on Skipper Bridge Road at Dermott. About 45 minutes earlier, a police officer had responded to a disturbance at the Skipper Ridge Road address where Johnny Hayes and “another person,” got into an argument, according to an Arkansas State Police news release.
The news release did not identify the other person.
When police arrived at the residence a second time, Johnny Hayes was in the yard, unresponsive and Carolyn Hayes was seen walking in the front yard, but wounded. Johnny Hayes was later pronounced dead at an area hospital. His body was transported to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory where the manner and cause of his death will be determined.
Law enforcement officials have not made an arrest in the case.
Arkansas State Police, along with the Dermott Police Department, Drew County Sheriff’s Office and Chicot County Sheriff’s Office are all investigating the shooting.
