— Authorities are investigating after a 25-year-old man was fatally shot when a fight broke out on Main Street in Arkadelphia.

Arkadelphia police Sgt. Roy Bethell said Jerome Caldwell was killed in the melee early Sunday. Bethell told the Siftings Herald that Caldwell was apparently a bystander and not involved in the fistfight that broke out near Dino’s restaurant in Arkadelphia.

Police say Caldwell was shot in the lower back. A friend carried him to a vehicle and drove him to an Arkadelphia hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Authorities say about 200 people fled as officers arrived.

Bethell said a group had rented the restaurant for a private party before the fight broke out.

Police said they’ve identified the suspected gunman but that no one has been arrested yet.
