Jonesboro police are investigating a homicide that happened Tuesday night.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found Dewayne Turner, 28, of Blytheville dead in the middle of the road in the 900-block of Logan Avenue.

"Now here we are with a victim of a shooting, potentially a homicide, we don't know at this point. We simply just don't know what we are dealing with. We don't know why this occurred."

So far, there are no known suspects at this time.
