JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police have identified a man shot Saturday night. Now, they're looking for the suspected gunman.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired around 10:15 p.m. Saturday in the 800-block of Hope Street.

When they arrived, witnesses told police a man shot 36-year-old Phillip Antonie Hamilton following an argument. Both of the men then left the scene, they said.

Officers ultimately found Hamilton, and he was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, according to a news release from Paul Holmes, public information specialist for the Jonesboro Police Department.

Detectives are pursuing a number of leads in the case, Holmes said; but no arrests have been made. 

The suspected gunman has not been identified.

Anyone with information on the shooting can call Detective Jacob Daffron at 870-935-6710 or Jonesboro CrimeStoppers at 870-935-STOP.
