Man shot in downtown Trumann last week
Last Wednesday downtown Trumann was taken over by activity surrounding the shooting of William Lytle, 22, of Trumann.
Shortly before 4 p.m., a 16-year-old Trumann juvenile and an unidentified male got into a verbal confrontation. It was reported the juvenile then went into his residence and got a 30-30 lever-action rifle.
According to reports, Lytle approached the juvenile and asked him what he was doing with the gun and was then shot in the groin area by the juvenile. The bullet exited through Lytle’s buttock. He was transported to St. Bernard’s Medical Center where he was immediately operated on to stop bleeding and repair damage done by the bullet.
When police arrived on scene, the juvenile went back into his home. After speaking with Trumann Police Department Chief Larry Blagg on the phone, he turned himself in.
A gag order was placed on police personnel and lawyers in the case by Judge Steve Inboden last Thursday.
it probably wasnt the best question to ask.
