"Tonight's the night. Tonight's the night," April Swanner recalled [...] Lard saying. [She] didn't know what her friend meant until the car door clicked and Lard lunged toward Officer [...] Schmidt, shooting him in the neck. Swanner, [...] one of three [...] in the car that Schmidt pulled over after a quick license plate check showed the car might not have insurance. It's not clear [why] Lard, 37, [shot] at Schmidt and Sgt. Corey Overstreet. Schmidt was patrolling the [town] of some 7,000 [...] and pulled over Keith Elumbaugh, 33, of Trumann, [...]. Elumbaugh [said], during the [...] stop, he [...] was being held for failing to appear on a misdemeanor warrant. The accusation: he violated the town's leash law with [...] a Jack Russell terrier and Chihuahua mix named Rascal.
