Arkansas Deputy Shot And Killed

We reported earlier that a Sebastian County (AR) Deputy and Hackett (AR) Police Chief were both shot this morning after responding to a disturbance call.

We regret to report that Sebastian County Corporal Deputy Bill Cooper was taken off life support and died shortly afterwards.

Bill was known to all as a great guy and on behalf of Law Officer, we extend our prayers to the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Department, the community and Bill’s family.

The Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office issued the following statement:

“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Corporal William Cooper. Corporal Cooper was shot today in the line of duty responding to a domestic disturbance call. Corporal Cooper has been employed with the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office since 2001 and served five years with the Fort Smith Police Department. Corporal Cooper also served with the United States Marine Corp.

We ask that you continue to pray for his family, friends and our department during this difficult time. Corporal Cooper will be deeply missed by all that knew him.”
