At approximately 10:43 p.m. March 8, UCAPD heard five gunshots near Erbach apartments.

UCAPD Project Manager Arch Jones said one of the officers heard the shots, but thought it was coming from off campus.

“There is an ongoing investigation happening at this time, but no updates have been reported,” Jones said.

According to the official report, an officer heard two original shots followed by three rapid-fire shots. The officer quickly performed a sweep of the south side of the apartment complex to ensure no one had been shot and that no property had been damaged.

He finished the sweep and arrived at Baridon Street, coming across a man walking toward the patrol car from Torreyson Avenue.

The man, later identified as Stephen Ardeneaux, said he saw a white car leave the area of the shooting and head west on Erbach Street.

The officer saw a white car traveling west toward Donaghey Avenue as he was completing the sweep of Erbach Apartments.

UCAPD found broken glass and a car jack near the eastbound lane of Erbach Street, just past Baridon Street. The officer then made contact with two women who said it was a white car and silver car shooting.

At that point, the white car came back, prompting the officer to run toward the vehicle after the two female witnesses identified it as the car involved. Gary Walker, Christopher Holmes, Quince Shannon, Deanna Ester and Orenthal Walker II, the five people inside the car, jumped out. The officer raised his pistol at them, ordering the individuals to show their hands and get on the ground.

The individuals were frisked, but no firearm was found.

Shell casings were later found alongside the eastbound lane of Erbach Street.

Later investigation concluded that the five people in the white car had been the ones shot at by suspects driving a late model gold Nissan Maxima with no license plate.

No further action was taken by UCAPD.

Jones said the case was been handed over to the Conway Police Department.
