William May, 20.

Two men were hospitalized and one man is in custody Wednesday in Texarkana, Ark., after a double shooting.

According to a release from the Texarkana Police Department, the shooting was reported about 1 p.m. in the 300 block of Shell Drive. Authorities were flagged down by two victims, both of whom were suffering from gunshot wounds. One man was shot in the hip and hand, while the other man was wounded in the chest.

Police were given a description of the suspect by the victims, along with what the individual was driving, according to police. The condition of the victims is unknown at this time.

A search led authorities to the 400 block of Oats Street, where police arrested William May, 20, of Texarkana. He was charged with first-degree battery, the release stated.

A previous report from the Texarkana Gazette said that the shooting purportedly happened during an argument.
