The Little Rock police say Detective Todd Hurd, a member of the force since 1992, fired the two shots that killed a burglary suspect, Michael Daniel, 25, Friday morning.
The police report said that Hurd fired when the suspect was attempting to take a gun from Detective Kenneth Blankenship, a 27-year veteran. The police narrative of events, much like one released Friday without identifying the officers involved, follows on the jump. It says Daniel stopped during a chase as if to surrender, then started fighting with Blankenship.
Here’s the incident report and the arrest report of Daniel’s companion.
The police are not saying where the slain suspect was wounded until autopsy results are complete.
Hurd was featured in a 2002 article for his gang-related work.
