Hugo Police Shoot Four In Arrest Standoff

A robbery suspect and three children were shot Friday afternoon by Hugo Police. The OSBI says the officers were trying to make contact with 21-year-old William Devaughn Smith when the shots were fired after he allegedly attempted to run over them. Smith was in a vehicle with a woman and four children. He was wounded, treated and released and then arrested. Three wounded children were transported to a trauma hospital with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries. Smith is the suspect in an armed robbery of the Hugo Pizza Hut earlier in April. The officers have been placed on administrative leave.
