A little while later, around 11 a.m., Blytheville police received a tip that Terrance Mathis, wanted for a shooting on Elm Street, was near Parkway Drive.

Responding officers were given a description of the vehicle Mathis was in.

Mathis got out of the vehicle, started running, and threw objects as he ran.

He was eventually taken into custody. Officers also found a bag they suspect had drugs belonging to Mathis in it.
