BPD: 1 killed, 11 injured in Blytheville shooting

BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

A Blytheville shooting killed 1 woman and injured 11 others Saturday, according to the Blytheville Police Department. 

Police said a domestic dispute at 833 Anderson St. around 11 p.m. resulted in the death of 19-year-old Adline King of Blytheville. 

King was pronounced dead at the hospital. 

Police believe an ongoing feud between King and another individual led to the shooting. 

EMS units transported 4 other victims with gunshot wounds to Regional One in Memphis, including 34-year-old Delushun Greene, 20-year-old Alicia Williams, 39-year-old Lloyd Williams and 31-year-old Darrin Woodard.

According to police, 6 other shooting victims with minor injuries went to Great River Medical Center by private transportation, including 31-year-old Christopher Gunn, 25-year-old Anisha Haley, 25-year-old Candace Jackson, 39-year-old Katresa Parker and two male juveniles. 

According to a press release, a fight broke out and a 200-person crowd confronted officers at the hospital Saturday night. Officers described the scene as "chaotic and emotional."

Additional officers from the Blytheville Police Department, Mississippi County Sheriff's Department and Arkansas State Police were called in for backup. 

Police said the final victim, 19-year-old Miracle King, was treated at St. Bernards and released.

All victims were from the city of Blytheville. 

Police said the suspects are still at large.

Officers are investigating the incident as a homicide and ask anyone with information to come forward. 

Pafford Medical Services, whose crews responded to the shooting, posted the following on its Facebook page: "Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Blytheville, Arkansas. Overnight more than a dozen victims were shot, resulting in at least 1 death. Please keep the Pafford EMS Medics, Blytheville Police and Emergency Services and Great River Medical Center staff in your prayers this morning as they have worked together to save as many victims as possible."
