JONESBORO, AR - More details are emerging this afternoon in a fatal home invasion incident from last night in north Jonesboro that left one person dead and another in police custody

Jonesboro police officers were called to 1301 Calley Cove Road for an apparent break-in and shooting.  When officers arrived at the scene, they found the body of a 45-year-old white male, dead of an apparent gunshot wound.  That person has since been identified as David D. Holt of Lake City.

Police have arrested 41-year-old Jeff Gulley in connection with the shooting.  Gulley, who lives at the residence where the shooting occured,  is currently being held in the Craighead County jail.  "When the officers of the Jonesboro Police Department were dispatched Calley Cove, it was in reference to a break-in and shooting.  When the officers arrived they found the victim of an apparent shooting," said JPD Sergeant Steve McDaniel.

The incident happened shortly before 9:30 p.m.

The JPD released a statement this afternoon that states, "Investigators believe Mr. Gulley and Mr. Holt have had an ongoing disagreement which may have led Mr. Holt to the Calley Cove residence last night.  According to reports, Mr. Holt is believed to have been armed with a handgun and had forcefully entered the house just prior to being shot by Gulley.  Shortly after the shooting, Mr. Gulley called the police and reported the incident."

Police arrested Gulley on an unrelated misdemeanor drug charge, and he remains in custody at the Craighead County jail at this time.
