Texarkana Arkansas Police Department is investigating a shooting that took place on Tuesday, August 9, at approximately 7 p.m.
According to TAPD, officers assigned to the Uniform Patrol Division responded to the apartment complex located at 3302 Washington Street in Texarkana, Arkansas in reference to a report of a physical altercation involving two women.
Moments after arriving on scene, information led officers to believe the altercation was a result of a domestic dispute over a man, and as this dispute began to unfold, one of the women involved contacted her family members who reside in Shreveport, Louisiana in an effort to arrange transportation from the scene.
When the family members arrived at the apartment complex at approximately 9:35 p.m., the dispute reignited, and two individuals—whom officers believe are family members of one of the dispute’s participants, exited a vehicle armed with unknown types of firearms and fired multiple rounds of ammunition in the direction of parked cars where other people had gathered in the wake of the commotion.
TAPD Officials say two people were struck by bullets, victims who were subsequently treated and released from a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries as a result of this episode.
This case remains under investigation, and multiple arrests for violations of the following offenses are anticipated: battery; aggravated assault; and terroristic act.
Anyone with additional information is urged to contact the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department at 903-798-3130.
