Two killed in White County shooting

By Gavin Lesnick

— Two people shot this morning in White County have died, authorities said.

Audra Evans, 40, and Robert Edward Berry, 41, were each shot about 10:30 a.m. at 115 Shelbey Drive, said White County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Greg Coney.

The resident, Mark Sullivan, is considered a suspect in the shootings, Coney said. He has not been charged in them, however, and has been arrested only on an unrelated misdemeanor warrant for terroristic threatening.

Responding deputies found the victims in the garage of the home. Officials initially transported them to the White County Medical Center for treatment.

Coney said Evans is believed to have been either Sullivan's ex-wife or a former girlfriend. Berry was her current boyfriend.

The events leading up to the shooting remain unclear.

"The investigators are still out there trying to put together all the pieces," Coney said.

Both victims will be sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for autopsies.

Joylynn I used to know you. We rode the bus together when we were kids. I am Audra's 1st cousin. My wife and I are so sorry for your loss. Please know that your brother was trying to do the honorable thing by protecting the woman that he loved and that he is a hero in our family's eyes. We wanted to stop by your brother Scott's house today because we live right up the hill on Foster Chapel but things were too crazy today. The Police will not say anything about what happened, but we have heard that your brother and Audra went to Mark Sullivan's home to collect some of her belongings or possibly some money that he owed to her. We heard that Mark called Audra sometime this morning and said for her to come over. Some type of altercation broke out between Mark and Rob, no doubt due to Mark's waking up and cracking a beer or six, as usual. And I'm sure that he started mouthing and they got into a fist fight. Since Mark is a coward and can't fight fair, he ran into his living room and grabbed a shotgun from under his couch. Then we heard that Audra tried to grab the gun to keep Mark from shooting Rob and that is when Audra was shot, and after that he then turned the gun on Rob killing both of them in cold blood. We watched the news at 5 and it said that Mark had been charged with double homocide, but for some reason nothing about it was on the news tonight. No police have even been around to interview any of the family so we don't know for sure how much of this is true, we got some information from some good sources. You can look my number up in the book if you would like to talk more. I would be glad to tell you anything else I find out.

Joylynn, I just read your post thank you for the kind words..we just talked to Audra's father and apparently Mark's current girlfriend Theresa(don't know last name yet)was a witness. She told someone we know that Audra and Mark were arguing inside the house and Rob was waiting for her in the vehicle, when he heard the yelling he ran in the house to make sure audra was OK and was killed Shot by Mark instantly as he entered the house. We are unsure how Audra was shot at this point. Wish we could get some help from the police so we could all know what really happened, but I am sure they are trying to do a thorough investigation until they release any more information. We will definately inform you of anything new we hear, but please remember that as of right now this is all hearsay. Please keep in touch if you hear anything else. Thank you and God Bless

i know the story behind all this will never see the light of day. if the truth does ever come out, the charges will change from murder to PREMEDITATED MURDER! i know mark..i know ya'll and this murder was discussed before it was carried out. mark thought/talked about this situation & about what he needed to do, to make this seem like a self defense killing and is now only trying to weasel out thru the self defense plea. when this doesn't work, watch for him to attempt a suicide and go into dt's(b/c, it is indeed true, mark had a bad alchohol problem, bad enuff he would awaken from dt's and need a shot or 2 of liquor to go back to sleep) in an attempt to go to a psych hospital w/abrain problem, instead of a prison. i promise you mark has thought of every angle of this, he was 1 of the most manipulating/cunning/plotting person i have ever met. everyone please remember, brooke, marks daughter...i havent seen any1 anywhere mention her in their prayers...just b/c her father is scum and her mother is of no count, doesn't bar the door for her to try and live a normal life!

I agree with bunch; i've thought it was premeditated since i've read all the problems audra had with this guy. the man has a screw loose and needs to be put away for a very long time; death penalty would be great!
