Officers responded at 11 p.m. Saturday to the house at 833 Anderson St. in Blytheville, Police Chief Ross Thompson said in a statement. There, they found one person suffering from a gunshot wound and learned that 10 others were taken to Great River Medical Center and Regional One in Memphis.

Adline King, 19, of Blytheville was killed in the shooting, Thompson said.

Four people were transported to Regional One with gunshot wounds: Darrin Woodard, 31; Alicia Williams, 20; Lloyd Williams, 39; and Delushun Greene, 34.

Six others were treated for minor injuries at Great River Medical Center: Candace Jackson, 25; Christopher Gunn, 31; Katresa Parker, 39; Anisha Haley, 25; and two unidentified male youths.

The victims taken to the two hospitals were treated and released, Thompson said.

Miracle King, 19, was transported to the St. Bernards Medical Center in Jonesboro and remains in stable condition.

All victims are Blytheville residents.

The shooting may be the result of an ongoing feud between an unidentified individual and Adline King, Thompson said, although he did not go into details about the events surrounding the shooting.

When officers arrived at Great River Medical Center, where a fight had broken out, Thompson said they were confronted by 200 people.

"The scene at the hospital was chaotic and emotional," he said.

Additional Blytheville police officers, deputies from the Mississippi County sheriff's office and Arkansas State Police troopers were called to the scene.

Thompson said the investigation is ongoing.
