JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- At least one person has been shot on or just off West Nettleton in Jonesboro. Helicopter evacuation is taking place for one of the suspects, who police say was shot. The shooting appears to have taken place near Annie Camp Junior High, though there appears to be no connection or incident having taken place at the school.

A vehicle suspected to be involved in this is a 90s model blue Crown Victoria. Suspects are believe to be in their late teens/early twenties, all believed armed and dangerous. One of the suspects has a white tank top with the front of his neck tatooed.

Suspects were last seen going east, possibly headed in the direction of Blytheville.

Region 8 News has a crew on scene and we'll update this page with the latest details.

It happened on Broadmoor, which is near Annie Camp, but not close enough for them to include it in the article. All that does is freak people out if they only hear "shooting" and "Annie Camp". Hell, I'm surprised we even know anything about it, seeing as KAIT tends to leave out the "real" news in Jonesboro

yeah, i watch kait8 and was under the impression that the crime rate is 0%. Occassionally there will be a shoplifter on crimestoppers but thats it. Heard there has been some trouble at club 870 that no one will talk about either

Club 870 was shut down. Watch K8 or read The Sun and you'd know that little tidbit of information!

I wonder if that was tied in with the whole incident that got them shut down? Or has this happened since the shut down?!
You know stuff needs to improve on the north side of town. There are some nice neighborhoods, but you have that thug-sect that just ruins it for the whole group! You know what they say, "We can't have nice things because of you."

It is not just the North side of town. It use to be. I live in the South part and my friend lives in the East. They are getting just as bad. I am so ready to leave this place. I don't want my kids growing up in this. I honestly don't think it is going to get any better. The big dogs are scared to step on certain people's toes. WHY?

It's that way every where,J-town has pushed for the growth and now it has it,with all the 22's & 24's to go with it. It will not get better. Thing to do is prepare for the worst I could go in to detail but it's not worth it. Guy's teach your gals how to shoot to kill,spend some quality time with them. Single ladies find a shooting range and be taught by someone to handle a firearm if you do not already know how. Even if you are anti firearm,learn about them.Prepare your self mentally to be prepared,if you don't you will be on the news. These people do not care about you,they have no feelings about life it self. I could go on but I think you get the picture.
