A man who was killed in a Pine Bluff shooting that also injured four others has been identified, officials said.

Dashon Cobbs, 35, of Pine Bluff was pronounced dead at 9:44 p.m. after being shot, April Davis, deputy coroner for Jefferson County said.

The Pine Bluff Police Department said officers were called about 9 p.m. to a home in the 700 block of East 25th Avenue, where they found Cobbs and three other injured people. Another shooting victim was taken to the hospital in a personal vehicle.

It appears there was a party or gathering at the residence when shots were fired from the street into the home, Officer Richard Wegner, police spokesman, said.

Police didn't identify the injured, though authorities described them all as adults who had non-life threatening injuries.

Police didn't release any information on a suspect or motive. The statement noted the investigation is in its early stages.
