At about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, Conway Police were called to the emergency entrance of Conway Regional Medical Center for a possible shooting. When they arrived, hospital staff escorted them to a man lying in the passenger seat of a car with a gun shot wound to the chest, lifeless. He is 26-year-old Jeramiah Haney of Conway.

Northern Faulkner County hit by more small quakes

 

The Log Cabin Democrat newspaper said the most powerful of the 14 quakes recorded from Thursday morning to Monday morning had a magnitude of only 2.5. Researchers say quakes of 2.5 to 3.0 magnitude are typically the smallest felt by humans.

The USGS said all of the earthquakes had their epicenters in a region 10 to 15 miles northeast of Conway, mostly in the vicinity of the community of Guy.

A number of small earthquakes in the area have been reported for months, and geologists have installed sensors to better understand why the quakes are occurring. The Faulkner County Office of Emergency Management has scheduled an earthquake information session the evening of Nov. 9 in the Guy-Perkins High School cafeteria.

Officials have said the cause of the small quakes is unclear.
