Witnesses: Slain Ark. officer saved partner's life
TRUMANN, Ark. – An Arkansas couple says a policeman killed during a late night traffic stop pushed his colleague out of harm's way despite having been shot in the neck.
Keith Elumbaugh (EL'-uhm-bow) says Trumann police stopped his car shortly before midnight Tuesday while he and his girlfriend gave 37-year-old shooting suspect Jerry Lard and Lard's female friend a ride home.
Elumbaugh and girlfriend April Swanner told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he was standing handcuffed outside his car on an unrelated outstanding warrant when Lard opened fire on police from the back seat.
