CANTON, Miss. (AP) — An Arkansas man has been killed by police in Mississippi after they surrounded a hotel over the weekend.
Authorities say Quentin Bogard of Jonesboro, Arkansas, barricaded himself inside a room at the Relax Inn in Canton, Mississippi, on Saturday afternoon.
Police said that after a three-hour standoff, Bogard fired on officers, who returned fire and mortally wounded him.
Christopher Vauthan, a hotel guest who was in a room below Bogard, tells WAPT-TV that he and other guests and staff members were moved to the office area of the hotel.
There were no reported injuries among guests or employees.
