Three people are dead and at least three more are wounded after a shooting early Sunday morning in Jonesboro, according to police.

The Jonesboro Police Department said on Facebook that the shooting “occurred at a private party” and they believe there’s no active threat to the community.


Officers were dispatched to the 600 block of Burke Avenue shortly before 5 a.m. this morning. A woman and a man were shot and killed by a suspect, “who is also deceased,” the police department said.

At least three others were wounded during the confrontation. (As of 11:05 a.m., a person reached by phone at the police department said he wasn’t certain of the exact number of injured victims.)
