Re: Shooting in Attempted Robbery

 

On Thursday, January 19, 2017, at approximately 12:00p.m., Texarkana Arkansas Police Department responded to 900 block of Jackson Street in reference to a 911 call of shots fired.

Upon officer's arrival, it was determined that an attempted robbery occurred in the 800 block of Grim street, where 4 or 5 unknown suspects entered a residence and attempted to rob the victims at gunpoint. One of the victims fled the residence and was pursued by the suspects in a dark vehicle, possibly a Nissan Altima or Maxima. The victim was subsequently shot by one of the suspects and located in the 900 block of Jackson Street by a family member who transported him to Wadley for medical attention where he is currently being treated with non-life threatening injuries.

Anyone with information regarding this or any other crime is urged to contact Texarkana Arkansas Police at 903-798-3154, or the Texarkana area CrimeStoppers at 903-793-STOP.
