Police arrested a 23-year-old Jonesboro man after two people were struck by gunfire on Monday, seriously injuring one.
Officers responding to a report of gunfire on Melrose Street in Jonesboro at about 1:30 p.m. found the two gunshot victims, a Facebook post by the city’s police department states.
Berrie Sanders, 30, was treated at the scene for minor injuries, and Brandon Williams, 24, was taken to a local hospital in serious condition, Jonesboro police spokeswoman Sally Smith said Tuesday morning. She didn’t have an update on Williams’ condition.
Police said they arrested Lavardius Dionte Booker and transported him to Craighead County jail. Booker remained in jail Tuesday morning on a first-degree battery charge, according to an online jail roster. No bond was listed.
