Donald “Donnie” Hux died Sunday night after a gun battle with Union County authorities on U.S. 82 west of El Dorado. His ex-wife, whom Hux had kidnapped earlier in the day, was also found deceased.
Details are sketchy, but reports say that Hux was killed after he was seen fleeing his parents’ home in the Parkers Chapel community on Sunday night. Police pursued Hux, which led to an exchange of gunfire in which Hux was killed about 9 p.m. The body of his ex-wife, Amy Huckabee of Arkadelphia, was also found.
No officers were reported injured.
Authorities were expected to release more details on Monday.
