For the second time in as many days a shooting in North Jonesboro leaves one man in the hospital.

According to Sgt. Steve McDaniel of the Jonesboro Police Department, an 18 year old black man was shot Sunday night. As of 9:45 P.M. he was still undergoing treatment for his injuries.

The shooting happened in the Cedar Heights area just off of Johnson Avenue. Details are still coming in, but JPD reports that they have two suspects in custody.

Sunday night's shooting occured just a couple of blocks away from where another shooting took place on Saturday night.

In that incident, a man named Francisco Martinez was shot in the arm.  Police have made an arrest in that case.  They have arrested William Woods for that crime and expect him to be charged with Battery in the Second Degree.  Woods is scheduled to be in front of the Judge on Monday.
