Man turns self in after allegedly firing shots, leading police on chase in Arkansas

HELENA-WEST HELENA, Ark. — Helena-West Helena police officers have captured a man they say shot at police Monday night.

Officers say it all started when Helena-West Helena Police responded to a shooting call at the 300 block of North Second Street. When an officer arrived on the scene, a man started shooting at the officer.

The officer called for backup and the suspect took off in a silver/gray Dodge Magnum. Police chased him.

The officer and the suspect exchanged gunfire before the suspect wrecked his car at Kentucky Street, then jumped out of the car and took off on foot.

Police originally said the suspect also kidnapped a woman, but the chief of police later said the woman officers found in the car wasn't cooperating and they aren't sure of her involvement.

The suspect, Robert Beckwood, turned himself in Wednesday afternoon. He's being held on a $50,000 bond.
