3 dead in knife attack on police officerThree people are dead and a police officer is recovering from surgery following a knife attack in northwest Arkansas, authorities said Sunday.

The attack happened on Sunday in Fort Smith, Arkansan, located about 160 miles northwest of Little Rock. In an afternoon news conference, Fort Smith Police Chief Danny Baker said officers were dispatched to a report of a disturbance fight with weapons around 6 a.m.

Upon arrival, an officer found a man, Christofer Conner, hitting a 15-year-old boy in the face and head with a rock. As the officer tried to place Conner, 40, in restraints, the suspect pulled out a knife and sliced the officer’s throat and neck, Baker said.

The officer then fired two shots, killing Conner, according to the Associated Press.
