According to Jonesboro Police Department Public Information Officer Cpl. David McDaniel, officers went to the Chateau Apartments in the 800-block of South Caraway Road around 8:15 p.m. Wednesday after getting a call about the shooting. 

In a media release, McDaniel said the person suffered a "serious injury by gunshot".

On Thursday, McDaniel released the victim's name to Region 8 News. McDaniel said 20-year-old Devontae Dewayne Fowler of Jonesboro was shot. He's still in the hospital and is "very serious and he is unconscious," McDaniel said in a news release.
