A Fort Smith Ar police officer has been placed on administrative leave after the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office said he fired a gun inside his home Tuesday morning (May 27) with two children inside.

Officer Naaman Adcock was placed on administrative leave with pay while authorities conduct an internal investigation. Sequoyah County authorities said they took nine guns from Adcock’s possession after he fired off several rounds into a wall inside his home after he got into a drunken dispute with his wife.

Authorities are also conducting a criminal investigation, said Sgt. Grubbs with the Fort Smith Police Department.

The incident happened just off of U.S. 64-B near the Long community around 2:30 a.m., according to Sequoyah County deputies.

One of the children inside the home ran to a neighbor’s house for help immediately after hearing the gunshots, dispatchers said. Neighbors then called police, according to authorities.

While on the way to Adcock’s home, deputies stopped a blue SUV traveling away from the residence. Driving the vehicle was Mrs. Adcock. When she was questioned about the gunshots, she said that she and her husband had been shooting tires in the yard, and that everything was fine, according to the incident report.

The report states that Mrs. Adcock was observed to be visibly upset. She kept wringing her hands and stuttering. The report also states that another deputy questioned Mrs. Adock’s two children who were also in the car.

Both children stated that Mr. Adcock put a gun to the head of Mrs Adcock’s son and threatened to shoot him, according to the report.

Deputies continued to Mr. Adcock’s residence, and when they knocked on the door, he answered with a gun drawn and pointed at a deputy. The deputy drew a gun and pointed it at Mr. Adcock, ordering him to drop his weapon, the report states.

The report states Mr. Adcock asked, “What? Oh really, are you going to shoot me?”
