The Latest: Man shot outside base went through bankruptcy

2 p.m. CDT

The suspect who authorities say was shot and critically wounded by guards outside a sprawling military base in Arkansas filed for bankruptcy five years ago, according to federal court records.

The documents show that Larry McElroy filed for bankruptcy in 2010. McElroy and a woman who lived with him at his Jacksonville home reported more than $112,000 in assets, but more than $230,000 in debts.

McElroy said he was unemployed in the filing.

The FBI says the 43-year-old McElroy was shot by guards outside the Little Rock Air Force Base on Monday. Authorities have said it wasn’t immediately clear why McElroy was trying to get on the base.

Authorities have identified the armed suspect who was shot and critically wounded by guards outside a sprawling military base in Arkansas, and say he has no ties to terrorism.

The FBI on Tuesday identified Larry McElroy as the man who drove his SUV over a curb at Little Rock Air Force Base on Monday, crashed into a street sign and began to exit his vehicle holding a rifle.

McElroy was shot by two guards. He remained in critical condition Tuesday.

The FBI said bomb squads did not find any explosives in McElroy’s vehicle or home.

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office said it helped secure a property for the FBI to search in Jacksonville, the city that abuts the base, shortly after the shooting.

Public records show that a 43-year-old Larry D. McElroy Jr. lives at the same address.
