Fort Smith police are seeking a suspect and two other people after officers found a man's body Monday night.

Officers responded shortly after 7:30 p.m. to the 4300 block of North 32nd Street regarding a possible shooting, according to a news release by Fort Smith police. Upon arrival, officers found 39-year-old Daniel Alexander Ahumada dead of an apparent single gunshot wound, the release states.

Following witness interviews and an initial investigation, 37-year-old Christopher Lee Stowell was identified as a suspect in Ahumada's killing but hadn’t been taken into custody at the time of the release, police said.

Two other people, a 29-year-old and a 26-year-old, were present but fled during the "altercation," the release states. Police were seeking the two for interviews.

Authorities said Stowell, the suspect, should be considered armed and dangerous.
