JONESBORO, AR - For the second time in two days, a shooting in north Jonesboro has left someone hospitalized.

The Jonesboro Police Department says an 18-year-old black male was shot early Sunday night at the Cedar Heights Apartment complex, north of Johnson Avenue.  The victim was still undergoing treatment late Sunday night and the status of his condition was not available to the media.

Two suspects were reportedly taken into police custody.

The incident follows a shooting on Saturday evening in which an argument between several people led to the shooting of 38-year-old Francisco Martinez.  Police have since arrested 28-year-old William Woods of Jonesboro in connection with the shooting.
