Arkansas State Police have identified a sheriff's deputy killed in a shooting in northern Arkansas as Sergeant Mike Stephen.
State Police spokesman Bill Sadler said Stephen responded to a domestic welfare check at a house in Leslie, about 77 miles from Little Rock, around 8:40 Thursday morning. Shortly after talking with a woman outside the house, gunfire erupted. Stephen was killed at the scene.
Sadler said police are working to identify the suspect, who also died.
