Executive at Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport SHOT!

(ReliableNews.org) – Federal law enforcement officers tried to serve a search warrant on an airport executive recently. Instead of cooperating with authorities, the executive director of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport ended up with a bullet wound.

At approximately 6 a.m. on March 19, agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) arrived at the home of Bryan Malinowski. The 53-year-old is the executive director of the Arkansas airport named after the former president and first lady.

According to reports, the ATF and Arkansas State Police alleged Malinowski fired a weapon toward the agents. Law enforcement returned fire, shooting him at least twice. First responders treated him at the scene and then took him to the hospital. His brother, Matthew Malinowski, told NBC News that at least one of the gunshot wounds was to the head, and his family doesn’t know if he will survive.

Matthew said that doctors have put his brother on life support and didn’t perform surgery on him “because they don’t think he’s going to make it.” His death was announced at noon on March 21.

On the day of the shooting, neighbors told Little Rock news station KARK 4 that they saw agents carrying ammunition and guns into a trailer. They also reported seeing members of the Little Rock Fire Department entering the home with crowbars, a circular saw, and other equipment that could be used to cut through metal.

Copies of the search warrant were not available to the public at the time of this writing. Officials have not revealed why they were searching the executive’s home. The case is reportedly going to be presented to prosecutors, who will determine whether or not deadly force was required in the situation and if it was used within the confines of state law.

An ATF agent was shot once and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
