According to the report, officers responded to the Bank of America on Geyer Springs Road after receiving reports of a shooting just before 8 a.m. on Wednesday.

After arriving on the scene, officers said a Loomis armored truck driver told them that Green had maced him, leading to him shooting Green “a couple of times.”

The driver said Green fell to the ground yelling, but within seconds got on his bike and left. Between that point and the next, Green is assumed to have gotten in his vehicle.

Later, LRPD officials said Green called dispatchers while on Interstate 430 near Rodney Parham Road.

When Arkansas Game and Fish and Arkansas State Police officers got there, they said Green was in his car, partially blocking traffic at a complete stop and he told them he’d been shot.

Police said he was taken to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment and is said to be stable now.

While KARK 4 News was able to confirm who he is and where he works and spoke to some people who knew him, no one wanted to go on camera or provide an interview. Many of those spoken to said this was out of character for Green and noted family and friends had been concerned about his state of mind leading up to this incident.

KARK 4 News also spoke briefly with the driver who is said to have shot Green. He said he was asking for permission to interview, though we still haven’t heard back.
