JONESBORO, Ark. – Suspects are wanted by JPD after a shooting that hospitalized two individuals Tuesday night in Jonesboro.
The shooting was reported at the 1700-block of Arch Street, which is near the train tracks as Nettleton Avenue meets Highland Drive. Parts of Highland Drive were blocked off close to 9 PM as officers found several shell casings where Arch meets Highland.
An off duty officer who lives on Arch Street heard the shots around 8:15 this evening, a release said. He went to investigate and located a car containing a female that had been shot in the left shoulder. A male, also riding in the car, sustained a gunshot wound to the left leg. Officers applied a tourniquet to his leg and waited on EMS to arrive. Both victims were transported to area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries. It is unknown how many people were in the car.
A white car was described as the suspect vehicle. It traveled west on Highland after leaving Arch Street.
