Police have formally charged a 17-year-old following two break and enters, and a shooting that happened on Mar. 4 in Fort Smith.
The youth is facing two charges of break and enter at the Department of Lands office, and at a residence. He’s also facing a charge of careless use of a firearm after shots were fired at a residence.
Police say multiple stolen shotguns are still missing.
On Mar. 4, police confirmed a shooting that left one person dead in the community. They have not connected both incidents, and the shooting is still being investigated.
