TEXARKANA, Ark. (KSLA) — One person is dead and another is hurting after a shooting in Texarkana, Ark.

Police say a woman fatally shot her estranged husband when he tried to break into the apartment.

Two children were inside the residence when it happened just after 8:30 p.m. Monday at Park Ridge Apartments in the 600 block of Price Lane, authorities say.

Police say they found 40-year-old Courtland Luckey in an apartment there. He had been shot multiple times.

Luckey had been banned from coming to the apartment.

After Luckey forced his way inside the residence, he began physically assaulting his estranged wife, Tynisha Luckey, and a 48-year-old man while a using a blade weapon, police Sgt. Kristi Bennett said.

That’s when she got a gun and shot Courtland Luckey multiple times, the spokeswoman added.

The wounded man was taken to a local hospital for treatment of severe injuries sustained prior to the shooting. Authorities say he is expected to be OK.

“Once this investigation is complete, the case file will be presented to the prosecutor’s office to determine what charges, if any, will be filed,” Bennett said.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
