Director of Bill and Hillary Clinton Airport in Arkansas Shot by Federal Agents After Allegedly Opening Fire

Bryan Malinowski, the executive director at the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport, got shot in the head by federal agents on Tuesday after a shootout at his home in west Little Rock.

On Tuesday morning, at around 6 am, ATF agents showed up at the 53-year-old’s house to serve a warrant. According to the Daily Mail, they were met with gunfire from inside the residence.

Arkansas State Police have verified that Malinowski was the person who shot at the agents, leading them to fire back in response.

The details regarding the warrant and why the ATF was involved at Malinowski’s home are still unknown, as authorities have chosen not to provide further comments due to the ongoing investigation.

Despite sustaining critical injuries, Malinowski received prompt medical care at the scene before being taken to a nearby hospital. As of Wednesday, his current condition has not been disclosed.

Nevertheless, a source close to the situation revealed to Arkansas Times that Malinowski was shot in the head during the exchange of gunfire and is now on life support.

“Today’s incident saddens us, and we pray for everyone involved,” Airport Commission Chairman Bill Walker told Fox News.

“As the chairman of the Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission, I have named Tom Clarke, the airport’s deputy executive director, as acting executive director. The airport’s day-to-day operations continue as normal,” he added.

As reported by Daily Mail:

According to his biography on the airport’s website, Malinowski has worked in the airline industry for more than 30 years.

He previously worked in leadership roles at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, El Paso International Airport in Texas and Lehigh Valley International Airport in Pennsylvania.

Malinowski joined Clinton National in 2008 as director of properties, planning and development before being promoted to deputy director in 2009. He took over as executive director in 2019.
