BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

Blytheville police have arrested one man and are searching for three others suspected in a Monday night shooting that sent two people to the hospital and left two others dead.

According to a new release by the Blytheville Police Department, officers responded to a call about shots fired at a home on the 1700-block of Sales Street.

Officers found Alonzo Sanders, 22, of Blytheville, a 15-year-old male and a 16-year-old male with gunshot wounds.

Police said the confrontation started earlier Monday evening over a dog.

Then Antonio Harris-Juneraick, 35, of Blytheville, returned to the home at 7 p.m.

The second confrontation ended in a shootout between Sanders, Juneraick and the juveniles.

As people tried to leave the scene, someone ran over and killed Juneraick.

Sanders later died from his gunshot wounds.

Police didn’t release the condition of the juveniles.

BPD arrested Raymond Juneraick, 52, on suspicion of first-degree murder, manslaughter, and two counts of first-degree battery. He is also accused of a terroristic act and a gang enhancement of engaging in violent criminal group activity. He's currently being held on a $500,000 cash bond.

Percy Jones lives three blocks from the crime scene and on Tuesday, he said he heard the violence unfold while restoring a nearby church.

He, and others who live in the area, said they're tired of the gun violence plaguing the area and they hope someone can find a way to end it.

"There needs to be something done, but what? Everyone you see is running around with a shooter in his pocket you talk about gun violence, gun violence, but you're steady sending them to them," Jones said.

Police are still searching for three other suspects: 52-year-old Israel Rocha, 28-year old Antonio Rocha, and 22-year-old Randy Rocha.

All three are wanted for first-degree murder, manslaughter, and first-degree battery.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts should call the Blytheville Police Department at 870-763-4411 or Blytheville Crimestoppers at 844-910-STOP (7867).
