​Gunman and Three Others Killed in Arkansas Shootings

The AP reports that a man in Jonesboro, Arkansas shot six people in a home on Saturday, killing a man and a teenager and critically wounding two boys. He then fatally shot an employee at a nearby business.

At a press conference last night, Jonesboro police Sgt. Doug Formon said that a man and a 13-year-old girl were killed on Saturday afternoon inside a home where it appeared that a family was having a party. Four other people were injured and were taken to hospitals in Memphis, Tennessee, including two children, ages 8 and 10, who were transported in critical condition.

Formon said that police received a call about the shooting at 1:00PM and responded to a report of a second shooting twenty-two minutes later at a local business, where a worker was found dead.

Around 3:30PM, police got a 911 call about a car parked in the middle of a county road. The suspected gunman was found inside, dead of a gunshot wound. Formon stated that it wasn't immediately clear if the wound was self-inflicted.

As of Saturday night, police did not know of a motive and said that the investigation is ongoing.
