“Sebastian County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Shue said he will not file any charges in connection with a fatal shooting in the 800 block of North 18th Street last month. On Feb. 3, homeowner Avelino Jimenez, 58, contacted the Police Department in reference to having shot a man armed with a knife who had reportedly broken into his home. Officers arrived and found the body of 29-year-old Jacob Webb with a gunshot wound to his abdomen. Shue said in a letter to Police Chief Danny Baker his office has completed its review of the investigative reports surrounding the shooting, and his opinion is Jimenez was justified under Arkansas laws.” (03/17/23)
