CID investigating Conway officer-involved shooting


A 78-year-old Conway man died as a result of injuries he sustained in an officer-involved shooting that occurred the morning of Monday, Nov. 20.

Conway Police Department (CPD) asked ASP’s Criminal Investigation Division to investigate the incident.

When CPD approached an Old Morrilton Highway residence with a search warrant at approximately 9:15 a.m., Allen Seibert, 78, of Conway came to the door holding a firearm. During the encounter, a Conway officer fired his service weapon.

Seibert was transported to Conway Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:46 a.m.

The deceased was transported to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory, where manner and cause of death will be determined. The investigation is ongoing.

An investigative case file will be presented to the prosecuting attorney, who will determine whether the use of deadly force by officers was consistent with Arkansas law.
