LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Arkansas State Police are searching for an Arkansas State Parks truck that was allegedly stolen during this afternoon's incident at Pinnacle Mountain State Park.

The vehicle license is 226PSM and is red with white letters.

6:00 p.m. Update:
Law enforcement agencies are searching for a suspect after an officer-involved shooting at Pinnacle Mountain State Park.

At 3:15 Tuesday afternoon, two park rangers were on stakeout on East Summit Trail due to a higher volume of vehicle break-ins in the area.

While on the stakeout, the park rangers heard glass breaking and approached the area with their weapons drawn.

The rangers approached three men in a truck and tried to detain them for the alleged break-in, when the driver tried to drive across Pinnacle Valley Road and tried to hit one of the rangers. The other park ranger then fired his weapon one time, causing the driver to hit a tree.

The driver then got out and ran, while the two passengers were arrested and taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Police say they believe the driver ran through the woods to the park maintenance building, where he reportedly stole a park pickup.

Law enforcement are currently searching for the white park pickup with a State Park logo on the side.

The park rangers did not suffer any injuries.
