Authorities investigating homicide of Faulkner Co. man

FAULKNER COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - Authorities are investigating the homicide of a Faulkner County man.

The story began when a man contacted officers at 5:30 Monday morning about receiving a strange text message from his son's girlfriend.

The father went to his son's home on Highway 25 in Guy to find no cars in the driveway and a broken latch on the front door.

Faulkner County sheriff's deputies arrived and found the man's son in a bathtub, dead from a single gunshot wound to the chest.

Maj. Andy Shock with the sheriff's department says authorities found the girlfriend in a field behind East Side Elementary School in Greenbrier.

"She was a little bit incoherent, she had some minor injuries. At this point -- it's so early we're not able to say factually because we just don't know," says Maj. Shock.

With little information at this point, no identities are being released.
