A woman who ran to a Domino's Pizza after being shot Wednesday night was one of four people hit by gunfire at a nearby residence, authorities said.

Debra Herd, 37, was said to be in serious condition after being shot while on the porch of a home in the 300 block of West 24th Avenue in Pine Bluff, according to a news release from the Pine Bluff Police Department. She reportedly ran to the Domino's about two blocks away after being hit.

Three men were also shot at the residence, suffering injuries described by authorities as not appearing to be life-threatening. They were identified as: 27-year-old Jeremy Harris, 34-year-old Tavonta Shelton, and 34-year-old James Bearden.

Police said the victims reported a white Dodge truck pulled up around 10:45 p.m. and two males exited the vehicle and began shooting. The house and a vehicle parked in the yard were also struck by the gunfire.

No information on suspects or a motive has been released, and no arrest had been made at the time of the release.

    Where were the good guys with guns? I hear about plenty of the bad sort, but the good guys seem to be ducking, leaving us with plenty of unchallenged bad guys. Could the bad guys just be good guys in disguise? People have a hard time telling them apart until it is too late.

    Good point Boltar. Clearly the saturation level of concealed carriers is far too low to be effective in many areas. Not to mention that good guys with guns typically do not associate with criminals or those who have quarrels with criminals, thereby leaving high crime areas disproportionately lacking of them.

    Do you have guns?
    Are you a good guy?
    Where were you?

    That is the problem. You would have to take the word of a perfect stranger who may be lying about whether they are a good guy, and may be lying about whether they have a gun. I like my good guys with guns to be in uniform, so everyone knows which is which, including the other good guys with guns.

    "Good guys" don't carry guns....why would a "good guy" need one? Unless he's a cop. Cowards, drug dealers and robbers need guns....they often put themselves in positions they can't get out of on their own. "Good guys" stay away from those situations, or call cops if trouble comes

    This article is incomplete. It fails to note which confederate statue triggered this violent act.
    Hey Boltar - Interesting you bring up good guys with guns. Recently it was learned the CDC buried a study, under orders from the Obama Administration perhaps, that indicated guns were used for defense almost three times more often than used by criminals. Please feel free to do a little research and correct me if I'm wrong. Seems there are PLENTY of good guys with guns out there and we need a lot more.

    I wonder if she knows that Domino's doesn't treat gunshot wounds.
