Steven Deshaun Clark was arrested around 2 p.m. Sunday for his role in the shooting. The judge set Clark’s bond at $500,000 cash-only.

Police say it started early Dec. 15, when they responded to the 1800-block of Cedar Heights Drive for a shots heard call and found a person shot.

That victim, a 29-year-old man, was taken to the hospital. His condition is unknown at this time.

According to probable cause affidavits, Clark and Walls entered a home and made threats to kill someone. Police say they then left the home and found the victim outside.

The court document stated Clark shot the victim several times, then shot at the residence he had left.

Police were able to track Clark after witnesses at the scene helped identify him.

Clark appeared in court Monday where a judge found probable cause to charge him with first-degree battery, terroristic act, possession of a firearm by a certain person, and discharging a firearm within city limits. He’ll appear in court again on Jan. 31, 2020.

Walls appeared in court Tuesday and is charged with terroristic threatening, and possession of a firearm by a certain person. The judge set Wall’s bond at $25,000.

This isn’t the first time Clark and Walls have been in trouble with the law.

Police previously arrested Clark for an incident that occurred back in Feb. 2014.

According to court documents, Clark pled guilty to Battery III and was sentenced to six months in jail for the 2014 stabbing.

Walls was arrested in 2013 and 2017 on multiple drug charges.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information should call Jonesboro police at 870-935-5657 or Jonesboro Crimestoppers at 870-935-STOP (7867).
