Halloween night shooting sends 1 to hospital, 2 suspects at large

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro Police are looking for two suspects after a Halloween night shooting that sent one man to the hospital.

According to a police report, the victim Alvin Green, age 54, was shot in the shoulder area with what appeared to be a small caliber handgun around 11:15 pm Friday night at an apartment on Roseclair Road in north Jonesboro.

Green says he heard a knock at the door and asked, “who is it”? The suspects responded with “Jason”. When Green opened the door, the men were wearing "Jason" Halloween masks and attempted to enter the apartment. After a brief struggle, one of the suspects shot Green.

There were also two children inside the home at the time of the attempted robbery. The children ran to a back room when the struggle started. They were not harmed.

Neighbors told Region 8 News that Green is out of the hospital and back at home.
