Springdale Police Looking For Shooting Suspect

Springdale Police said a suspect in a Saturday night shooting is still at large.

Police said a man identified as 29-year-old Craig Greene pulled a gun and shot at several people in a car after an altercation Saturday night.

Officers responded to the shots fired call around 10:20 p.m. at Van Someren Place Saturday. Witnesses told officers there was an altercation involving several people when a man identified as Greene pulled a gun.

A police report said Greene fired multiple times at several people who were attempting to leave the scene in a car. Police said they found at least one bullet hole in that car and also bullet holes in two other cars that were parked in the vicinity at the time of the shooting.

Police said they found shell casings at the scene.

Officers surrounded a duplex where Greene was believed to be hiding and brought out a K9 unit hoping to get the suspect’s scent. Neighbors were evacuated and traffic was blocked off near the home during the nearly five hour standoff.

Tonya Rash who lives behind the standoff said SWAT Team members came knocking at her door. Her husband was on his way home from work when police stopped him from getting close to his house.

“It’s not everyday when SWAT comes to your door and says ma’m we need to evacuate you,” Rash said.

Around 3:30 a.m. Sunday SWAT team officers raided the home, but were unable to  locate Greene.  Officers are planning to continue their search for Greene Sunday.  Officers said Greene has been arrested in the past and were planning to contact his parole officer to get a photo released to help officers locate him.

Greene is described as a black male last seen wearing a dark shirt and dark pants.

If you have any information that can help officers locate this suspect you’re asked to call Springdale Police at (479) 751-4542.
