Off-duty Pine Bluff officer shoots robbery suspect at Pines Mall

Posted: Updated:

Shots fired at a Pine Bluff mall today after a shoplifting incident. It happened earlier Friday evening when police say a woman tried to steal from Dillard's at the Pines Mall but was stopped as she tried to get away.

Pine Bluff police say a woman attempted to steal a product from the department store and she did manage to get out of Dillards when an off-duty Pine Bluff officer started to go after her. Police say she got in her car and then tried to run that officer over. But before she was able to do that he allegedly pulled out his gun and shot at her. She was grazed by bullets but she drove off about five minutes away and was pulled over at Ohio and 38th.

The woman is being charged with shoplifting and fleeing an officer.
