A 39-year-old Shannon Hills man died as a result of injuries sustained in an officer-involved shooting that occurred Thursday, November 16, 2023, in Saline County.
The Saline County Sheriff’s Office asked ASP’s Criminal Investigation Division to investigate the incident.
Saline County deputies were called to a home on Wasson Lane in Shannon Hills by a resident who reported that Jeremy Dale Adams was intoxicated and making terroristic threats. A physical altercation occurred after Adams was combative and did not comply with orders from the deputies, who then attempted to gain control of Adams by deploying a taser. During the encounter, a deputy fired his service weapon at Adams, striking him more than once.
Adams was flown to UAMS in Little Rock, where he was pronounced dead at 7:15 p.m.
The deceased was transported to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory, where manner and cause of death will be determined. The investigation is ongoing.
An investigative case file will be presented to the prosecuting attorney, who will determine whether the use of deadly force by officers was consistent with Arkansas law.
