JONESBORO, Ark. – A shooting incident erupted early Wednesday in Jonesboro and police are still piecing together the details of what happened.
It happened around 3:53 AM on April 5 at the 3600-Hargis, based on what police know so far, Sally Smith with JPD told NEA Report. Police learned about it after the victim showed up to a local hospital. The report says he suffered a gunshot to the abdomen and left arm.
The victim told police he and a friend were driving by a location on Hargis when he was shot. The report also mentions that a suspected drug deal may have been involved, meaning it may not have been a random incident.

Officers responded and located shell casings.
There is a suspect in the case but no arrests have been made as of 5 PM Thursday.
