KARK reported last night that a woman was shot in a standoff with police officers in Lonoke last night. No other details. She was reportedly taken from scene in an ambulance and State Police are investigating.

Update from State Police:


A Lonoke County woman was wounded late yesterday evening (February 14, 2018) after she reportedly fired a gun at local law enforcement officers who had responded to a call of shots being fired at 420 E. Holly Street.

When Lonoke County Sheriff’s Deputies responded, they encountered Janie Bryant, age 62, who had barricaded herself inside the residence. Deputies soon requested the assistance of the Lonoke County Special Response Team, in order to assist in removing Bryant from her home. As the Lonoke County Special Response Team attempted to make entry into the home, Bryant reportedly fired a weapon at several times at the officers, who then fired wounding Bryant.

Bryant was transported to a Little Rock hospital where she is reported to be in stable condition.
