Police in Fort Smith, located about 160 miles northwest of Little Rock, later determined the boy was Conner’s son.

As the officer tried to place Conner, 40, in restraints, the suspect pulled out an edged weapon and sliced the officer’s throat and neck, Baker said. The officer then fired two shots at Conner, killing him.Two people in Arkansas were found fatally stabbed and a third person was shot and killed by an officer whose neck was slashed, authorities said Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021. KFSM

The officer was rushed into emergency surgery, and was in stable condition on Sunday afternoon, Baker said. His name was not immediately released.

The boy was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He had sustained multiple stab wounds and other injuries, Baker said.

Other officers at the scene went inside a home and discovered “evidence of an extremely violent attack,” Baker said. They found the body of 42-year-old Julia Marie Moore inside the residence. Authorities believe she had been fatally stabbed.

CBS affiliate KFSM-TV reports that a 5-year-old child was also discovered safe in the home by officers. The child was removed and placed in the care of other family members, Baker said. 

“I have no doubt that our officers’ swift actions saved this child’s life,” Baker said.

Police did not immediately say what the relationship was between Conner and Moore, nor did they identify the parents of the 5-year-old found in the home.

The police department asked Arkansas State Police to lead the investigation because it involved an officer shooting.

The injured officer and a second officer were placed on paid administrative leave while the investigation continues.

Baker called Sunday’s incident an “unimaginable tragedy.”
