While it's common for competitions to take place pitting area school groups against each other â€” particularly for athletic events â€” youth organizations from three communities have decided to join together for a common cause.
Members of the Mayor's Youth Advisory Councils from the cities of Benton, Bryant and Haskell are joining forces for a bike race that will benefit The Care Center in Benton.
The race is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 14.
A pursuit with Benton police this afternoon ended in an officer-involved shooting, where the suspect died at the scene.
About 3 p.m., detectives observed the suspect, identified as 29-year-old Clifford Jones, in the area of Gattin Road and Madison Village and attempted to perform a traffic stop.
Jones reportedly refused to pull over for officers, driving quickly on Gattin Road toward Alcoa Road and then onto Interstate 30.
