- MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. (AP) — A shooting in northern Arkansas has left one person dead and another in custody.
The Baxter Bulletin reports that 71-year-old Chester Raymond Hornowski was fatally shot Tuesday in a rural Mountain Home residence. Police arrested 59-year-old Robert Dean Penny, alleging he was the one who shot Hornowski.
Baxter County deputies were dispatched to respond to a report of a shooting. Deputies allege they were confronted upon arrival at the residence by Penny, who was driving a pickup truck. Two deputies fired at Penny when he tried to flee, but police say his truck went airborne and hit a vehicle.

Decades in the mean city only to be cut down in retirement. Not the optimal ending. RIP.
