JONESBORO — A man was hospitalized Monday night following a shooting at the Wolf Creek Apartments, police say.
The Jonesboro Police Department responded to a woman’s call “regarding an unwanted person” at the apartment complex, 500 N. Caraway Road, it announced early Tuesday morning. When officers arrived, they found the victim afflicted with a gunshot wound.
The department’s Criminal Investigation Division is probing the shooting. The victim was transported to a local hospital for medical treatment.
“As of this morning, the victim in last night’s shooting is listed in stable condition,” said Sally Smith, JPD public information specialist.
Its report log notes that detectives initially probed first-degree domestic battering causing serious physical injury. The incident report filed for the shooting will be released today, as investigators plan to amend criminal charges, Smith said.
In JPD’s Facebook post, the department didn’t disclose where the man was shot. A suspect had not been arrested as of press time, Smith said.
JPD is also investigating an armed robbery in which shots were fired Monday at a residence in the 900 block of West Oak Street. Two unknown suspects demanded money from the male victim, 38, according to the incident report.
No property was reported stolen and the victim was unharmed, the report indicates. Smith said no arrests had been made and the probe was ongoing.
A 19-year-old suspect is sought by police following a Sunday domestic dispute that resulted in gunfire in the 600 block of Marshall Street, according to an incident report.
Police noted that the suspect forced himself into a woman’s home and pointed a firearm at her. The teen’s white 2006 Dodge Charger was towed away from the scene.
If arrested, he faces charges of aggravated residential burglary, aggravated assault, committing a terroristic act and third-degree domestic battering, the report suggests.
