Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport Executive Shot

( – A top executive for Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport sustained gunshot wounds after allegedly engaging in a shootout with police. Federal agents were attempting to serve a search warrant on the exec’s residence in the early morning when shots rang out and the exchange began. There’s no word on the reason behind the warrant, but officials reportedly removed ammunition and several guns from the grounds following the shootout.

The State of Arkansas’ official website reports that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives served a warrant at roughly 6 a.m. on March 19 at 4 Dorrance Court in Little Rock. It states that 53-year-old Bryan Malinowski was injured in the firefight, treated on the scene, and then transported to a local hospital. He then later died on Thursday, March 21.

A federal agent was also shot and was sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The remaining details in this case are unclear. Little Rock Police Department and the ATF have requested that the Arkansas State Police assist in their investigation. They’re trying to determine whether agents were justified in their decision to use deadly force. Officials will release more information as it becomes available.

Police haven’t publicly released how the shooting began, but states that Malinowski fired the first shot, prompting agents to return fire. It adds that firefighters brought in heavy equipment, including crowbars and circular saws, to cut through metal barring the entrance. Authorities reportedly piled firearms and ammunition they pulled from the home into a trailer.

Malinowski works as executive director at Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport, previously known as Little Rock Intermediate Air Depot. The 640-acre airport, originally run by the US Army Signal Corps, has offered commercial flights to the general public since 1931.
