POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - Poplar Bluff Police have arrested two people including the one responsible for a shooting on Business Hwy 67 in Poplar Bluff Sunday.

According to Poplar Bluff Police Department, 37-year-old James A. Dorris of Lugoff, South Carolina was taken into custody on Monday.

36-year-old Heather Dorris of Lugoff, South Carolina was also taken into custody. She faces charges for Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

Police say the two had traveled through Poplar Bluff from South Carolina heading to Bunker, Missouri.

In a News Release, Captain David Sutton said,

"The Poplar Bluff Police Department would like to express our deep appreciation to the area businesses which immediately helped us to capture images from their surveillance video; and to the news media (television, radio, and newspaper) for their help in distributing the information and images.  Without their help, this case would certainly not have been resolved as quickly."

Police searched Sunday and throughout the day Monday for a man and three others reportedly involved in a shooting in Poplar Bluff late Sunday afternoon.

The Poplar Bluff Police Department responded to the area of Business Highway 60 and Business Highway 67 in reference to shots fired at a vehicle late Sunday afternoon.
