A Calico Rock man is in jail after an incident turned into a lengthy standoff with Izard County authorities.

On Tuesday evening at approximately 9 p.m. Izard County deputies responded to a residence on Brown Hill Road near Calico Rock, according to a press release on Wednesday afternoon.

A female, who called authorities said she “had been shot at as she pulled into her grandmothers’ driveway.”

The release stated that the vehicle the female was driving “showed evidence of a bullet striking the windshield.”

The report stated further that when officers approached the residence, several other rounds were fired inside the residence.

After about a 4-hour standoff deputies were able to maneuver to a position where they took the suspect down when he stepped outside the door, without the use of deadly force.

The suspect was identified as Noel Gene Loosey, 59, of Calico Rock.

The release also stated that there are additional charges expected for Loosey including three counts of Aggravated Assault, Two counts of of felon in possession of a firearm, as well as a count of possession of drug paraphernalia. Loosey qualifies by state law as a habitual offender.
