Woman shot dead, cars hit by bullets at Pine Bluff intersection

A driver was shot in the arm and other vehicles were hit by bullets Tuesday afternoon at Martha Mitchell Expressway and Blake Street, Pine Bluff police said.

Just before 1:30 p.m., officers responded to a shooting at the intersection. A woman was shot in the upper left arm. The gunshot victim ran from his vehicle and into the Bottle King Liquor store where officers located him, according to the news release.

The victim and witnesses said a pewter or tan colored Chevrolet SUV pulled up next to the gunshot victim’s car and began shooting. Other vehicles were hit by bullets but the majority of the bullets fired hit the victim’s vehicle by bullet. The gunshot victim is the only person injured. She was treated at Jefferson Regional Medical Center for a non-life-threatening injury, the statement said.

Pine Bluff Police Chief Lloyd Franklin Sr. said the victim and witnesses are unable or unwilling to identify the shooter or give a reason for the shooting. Therefore, at this time, it is not known whether this was a targeted or random incident.

Franklin asks anyone with information about the identity of the shooter or the reason for the shooting to call and give their information. The detective’s office number is (870) 730-2090 and the dispatch center number is (870) 541-5300. Any information is useful, according to the police.
