Jonesboro police release more information about deadly shooting

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

More information has been released by Jonesboro Police Department about Tuesday night's deadly shooting.

Officers were called to a report of a home invasion at an apartment at 3005-A on Fairview Drive, near Red Wolf Boulevard. According to a JPD news release, the shooting occurred shortly after 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.

When officers arrived they found 24-year-old Isaac Bailey had suffered a gunshot wound and other injuries. Bailey was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to police.

Before the shooting, police said Bailey entered the apartment with the "intent to rob the resident of his money."

Bailey reportedly pointed a gun at the victim's head and demanded money. Police said the victim complied and after Bailey continued to demand money, a fight broke out between the two.

During the fight, the victim was able to get their gun and fire a shot at Bailey. Bailey continued to fight with the victim and a neighbor of the victim came to their aid, police said.

Once Bailey had stopped fighting, the victim called police. Bailey's body was sent to the Arkansas State Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.

A man wanted for questioning in the investigation of the incident was found by police Thursday. JPD spokesman Paul Holmes says officers believe Clarence Anderson was with Bailey on the night of the shooting.

It is unknown at this time if Anderson will face charges related to the incident.
