JONESBORO (AP) — Jonesboro police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man on the city’s north side.
KAIT-TV reports that officers responded to the scene, an abandoned lot, after receiving a call around 7:30 p.m. Friday.
Lt. Roy Coleman says witnesses told investigators someone shot the victim and then took off on foot. Coleman says the possible shooter was picked up by an unknown vehicle.
The victim wasn’t immediately identified. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and his body was sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy.
Investigators says the person who shot the victim remained at large.
