CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - A man is dead after a routine warrant arrest turned into a shootout with police Tuesday night.
According to the Department of Community Correction, it started when the suspect fired from inside the police car.
"You don't see stuff like this happening around here," said witness and neighbor, Kathy Ballard, "everyone around here heard the shots, everyone was running everywhere, it was chaotic."
According to Ballard, the first shot came from inside the patrol car, breaking through the side window.
"You can see the gun and his arm and a little bit of his body outside the window and he just open fires on the police officers," said Ballard.
ADCC says 35-year-old Jonathan Macintosh fired at two of their officers.
The officers returned fire until Macintosh stopped.
