At some point during the encounter between the Osceola police officer and Edwards, shooting began. Edwards was wounded and taken to a Memphis hospital. At least one round from gunfire at the traffic stop entered a nearby home and reportedly wounded a resident who was transported from the scene and later released by a physician.

Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division will conduct an investigation and submit their findings to the prosecuting attorney of jurisdiction to determine whether the use of deadly force by a law enforcement officer was consistent with Arkansas laws.

Questions relating to the identification of the local police officer or the administrative status of the officer should be directed to the Osceola Police Department
