BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) - Police arrested a 40-year-old man suspected of gunning down another man at a Blytheville business.

According to Sgt. John Frazier, commander of the Blytheville Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division, officers heard gunshots on Saturday, Oct. 14, near the Highway 18 overpass.

"Moments later the department began receiving calls about a subject shot at a business referred to as the Blue Building located at 2015 S. First St.," Frazier stated. "The investigation indicates that Robinson was at the business with others when he was shot."
