PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - An officer involved shooting in Pine Bluff on Friday left one man injured. A Pine Bluff police officer admitted to shooting a man inside her home, but it's unclear why she did it.
"I was just surprised," said neighbor Ellen Turner. "She doesn't seem like the type of person who would just shoot you or shoot anyone without justification."
Around 2 a.m. on Friday, Pine Bluff police responded to a home on 36th Street. They found a Pine Bluff police officer in the front yard, crying. An incident report said she screamed out to them "I shot my boyfriend."
"I'm sure she's shaken because as her boyfriend, you don't just shoot your boyfriend without justification and they seemed to me, to be such a lovely couple together," Turner said.
Police wouldn't say how the argument started but have said the officer fired at the man out of fear.
