Law enforcement officers arrested one of two suspects in a West Memphis shooting on Saturday, according to a media release, one week after the men are accused of killing two people.

Raheem Stackhouse, 23, surrendered at approximately 12:30 a.m. Saturday to officers with the Marion Police Department in southeast Arkansas, a media release from the West Memphis Police Department said. Stackhouse faces two charges of first-degree murder.

On April 6, West Memphis police officers responded to a shooting call at 1808 E. Broadway, where one person was found dead, according to previous reports. A second person died after being transported to the Regional One Health Medical Center in Memphis.

Officers from the West Memphis police; a U.S. Marshals task force; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the Crittenden County sheriff’s office collaborated in finding Stackhouse, according to the release.

Officers are still searching for 23-year-old Reginald Smith, the second suspect in the fatal shootings.

    Stackhouse is a thug with a long line of Felony arrests in his short time of being an adult(no telling what his juvenile record looks like). The oddest thing in his record is the amount times that nolle prosequi or nolo contedere was the final disposition. One of these cases was an arrest for murder at age 20 and lots of terroristic acts. I know, “innocent until proven guilty”, but this scumbag definitely has created an arrest pattern of criminal conduct! At age 23 he has been arrested twice for murder! Maybe this charge will stick and this fine southern gentleman can spend his remaining time behind a nice high wall.
