BARLING (KFSM) – A man who was found with a gunshot wound to the chest Tuesday morning (Aug. 19) in Barling has died, officials say.

Police and an ambulance were sent to 1101 M St. this morning where they found a man with a gunshot wound to the chest. The call came in around 9 a.m., according to police.

The victim was taken to Mercy Hospital in Fort Smith, and his identity hasn’t been released because not all family members have been notified of his death.

Police are still trying to figure out how the man was shot, and an investigation is ongoing.

Property records indicate that the home at 1101 M St. in Barling belongs to Danny J. Barton and Jo Ann Barton, but there is no indication from authorities that Barton is the victim of the shooting.
