A deliveryman was shot Tuesday night while trying to deliver Chinese food to a northeast Arkansas residence, police said.

Shortly before 10 p.m., an officer responded to a report of shots fired at a home in the 500 block of Marshall Street in Jonesboro, according to a report from the city's Police Department.

The 25-year-old homeowner told police that when he heard a knock on his door, he opened it to find a man, identified by authorities as 57-year-old James Loyd, delivering food for Dragon City Chinese Restaurant.

Police said that after being told by the homeowner that he didn't submit an order, Loyd walked to his car to leave.

Two people reportedly approached from behind a neighboring house a short time later, prompting the deliveryman to get inside his vehicle, lock the doors and start the engine.

The homeowner said he heard gunshots but did not look outside, the report states. Glass pieces were found outside the residence.

Loyd was shot in his right arm below the elbow and drove himself to St. Bernards Regional Medical Center in Jonesboro, the officer noted.

No suspects were named, and no arrests had been made at the time of the report.
