Man Killed By Ex-Girlfriend During Break-In, Shooting Rampage
One Dead, One Injured In Lavaca Shootout
May 10, 2004
LAVACA, Ark. -- One person is dead and one is injured after a Sunday night shootout in Lavaca.
The shooting happened about 9:15 p.m. Sunday at a home in Lavaca in Sebastian County.
The man who forced his way into the home, Billy Bowen, was killed during a shootout with people inside the home. A woman was injured during the melee.
The Sebastian County Sheriff’s Department said Billy Bowen was upset with his ex-girlfriend when he forced his way into her family’s home and began shooting with a semi-automatic rifle.
What Bowen didn’t know, according to authorities, is that some family members inside the home were armed with guns.
Bowen shot his ex-girlfriend’s grandmother during the rampage. Cpt. William Hollenbeck said Bowen then aimed the gun at his ex-girlfriend’s nephew. However, the ex-girlfriend reacted first and shot Bowen with her own gun.
Bowen later died.
Investigators said Bowen had a criminal record in addition to a stalking report filed against him by his ex-girlfriend just weeks ago.
Authorities were still at the scene Monday conducting their investigation.
The grandmother of Bowen’s ex-girlfriend is recovering at an area hospital. Authorities have not identified the injured woman, the ex-girlfriend and others involved in the shootout.
