SPRINGDALE (KFSM) — The Springdale Police Department announced Tuesday (Oct. 11) officers made an arrest in connection to a shooting at a Walmart Supercenter that happened Sunday night and left one man injured.

Officers arrested Geovanny Perez-Cruz, 18, of Springdale, Monday on suspicion of attempted murder and carrying a weapon, according to Lt. Derek Wright.

Investigators determined Perez-Cruz and the victim, Daniel Luna, 25, also of Springdale, were acquaintances who got into a verbal confrontation inside the Walmart on Elm Springs Road and then moved out into the parking lot, Wright said. That is where Perez-Cruz shot Luna in the arm, according to police.

Perez-Cruz left the scene and Luna went back inside the store where officers found him after responding to a gunshots call, Wright said.

Luna was taken to Washington Regional Medical Center for treatment, according to police.

Perez-Cruz told police he shot Luna by mistake and did not want to kill him, his arrest report states. Currently, he is being held at the Washington County Detention Center and his bond has not yet been set.

    Wow. Came to the comments to try and see if the victim was ok and find even more hate in this world. The rest of the world is doing a great job of tearing each other down. It would be nice for people to try to build each other up for a change.

    So sick of the bleeding heart do good liberals spreading their rainbows and unicorns. Is tragedy from the hands of one of these individuals upon one of your loved ones what it is going to take before you realize there is a problem? What if a stray bullet hit a small child and killed that child, would we be worried about one gang member talking trash to the other gang member at that point? This problem is more serious than anyone realizes, but everyone is caught up in fantasy land and they are not directly affected so they just let it blow away in the wind until it happens again

        I’m not here to win hearts or minds, only to wake morons like you up. I have a job, hope you are enjoying the welfare benefits I am paying for.
