BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

It was a busy night for Blytheville police as they investigated several homes and people being shot at Monday.

According to Captain Scott Adams with the Blytheville Police Department, Keyunta Hodges and Randy Lewis, are wanted in multiple shootings in Blytheville Monday night. 

According to a news release, officers responded to the 500-block of East Rose Street in response to gunshots around 10 p.m Monday.

When officers arrived, nobody was in the area.

Around 11:15 p.m., officers responded to more gunshots in the area and East Ash Street and Milan.

They talked to a man who said he was inside his house watching television with a friend and his two children, ages ten and one, when he heard a car outside with a loud exhaust.

The man looked out the window and saw two people in a white vehicle driving slowly toward his house.

Both of the people then started shooting at his house.

When the shooting ended, the man checked on his children. Nobody was injured.

Both the house and the man’s vehicle were damaged.

Spent casings were recovered from two different caliber weapons.

The man told police he thought his son was the target of the shooting but he was not home. However, the son had been home prior to the incident.

Officers were then dispatched to the area of East Rose again around 2 a.m. for more gunshots.

Two men, including the son from the earlier incident, came up to the officers and told them they had been shot at.

According to the release, they were pulling into a driveway on East Rose when a black Yukon pulled behind them.

They said two people got out and started shooting. Evidence was collected from the scene.

About an hour and 45 minutes later, officers responded to gunshots again, this time in the 1100-block of Hearn Street.

Sherel Jetton, a man who lives on Hearn, told Region 8 News the gun shots sounded like a war outside.

Jetton also said his neighbor told him she feared for her life.

"When the shooting started she got out of her bed and got in her floor and started to cry," Jetton said. "She told my wife about it yesterday. They exchanged phone numbers so they can call one another if they need to be together if something like this happens again."

Another woman told officers she was asleep in her house when she heard the shots.

Officers noticed a black Yukon in the woman’s driveway with about 13 bullet holes in it.

Officers also saw bullet holes in the victim’s house, a street, and two neighboring houses.
