MEMPHIS, Tenn. — An investigation is underway after three people were found shot in the roadway early Thursday morning in Trumann, Arkansas.
Trumann Police responded to a call about a man laying in the road near Highway 463 and Main Street.
Trumann Police said when they responded, they found three people: two men and one woman. All three of them had been shot.
“We pray for the victims in this case and hopefully we can resolve this quickly,” said Trumann Police Chief Jonathan Redman.
After investigating, Trumann Police said they were able to determine that the shots came from a “disturbance” at an apartment on Cross Street. Police believe they ran from the home after the shooting.
“We don’t get a whole lot of these, fortunately, for Trumann,” Redman said. “But we’re investigating it and hopefully if any charges we will be able to bring those who need to be charged. If not, we’re clearing that as well.”
According to police, two people are in critical condition, and the third is in stable condition.
Trumann Police believe this was an isolated incident among the three individuals. They are still trying to determine who pulled trigger and the circumstance surround the shooting.
Cross Street has been shut down as a result, pending an investigation.
As for neighbors like Earnie Link, the uncertainty is concerning for him.
“Oh man, I mowed my yard this morning,” Link said. “I’ve seen more cars in our neighborhood and I’ve seen in a long time people are just, you know, kind of scared and wonder what’s going on.”
Link says given how often shooting have been happening across the country, this was not a surprise.
“Ten years ago, I would have said this was something strange, but nowadays there’s so much going on in the world and people are just, I don’t know, just shoot for cause of nothing, it’s kind of scary,” Link said.
