The suspect Helena-West Helena Police were seeking they say fired shots at an officer in a Monday night incident turned himself in Wednesday afternoon.

WREG-TV Channel 3 out of Memphis, Tennessee reported that Robert Beckwood is being held on a $50,000 fine. Beckwood avoided police almost 48 hours.

Police reports indicate that the incident began in the 300 block of North Fourth Street. An officer was quickly dispatched to the scene. When the officer arrived, a man started firing at the officer.

The officer immediately called for backup. The suspect drove away in a silver-gray colored Dodge Magnum. A chase ensued.

Gunfire was exchanged between the officer and the suspect before the suspect wrecked his vehicle on Kentucky Street. The suspect proceeded to leap from the car and fled on foot.

Police originally reported that the suspect had kidnapped a woman in the incident. Police Chief James Smith later told Channel 3 news that the woman officers discovered in the car that Beckwood was driving refused to cooperate and at this time, they are not sure of the extent of her involvement. However, she was reported injured and transported to a nearby hospital. The extent of her injuries were not reported.

Beckwood is possibly facing charges of aggravated assault, a terroristic act, careless and prohibited driving, fleeing and leaving the scene of an accident.
