JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Jonesboro police stayed busy this past weekend investigating six shootings.

One of those shootings happened Sunday on Smoot Drive.

Brandi Milligan was celebrating Friendsgiving with her friends on Teresa Circle, just a street over, when they heard gunshots.

They were not sure where the noise came from, but they knew it was extremely close.

“It was that immediate reaction of ‘What just happened?’ and then after we realized what happened it was just like ‘Everybody get inside,’” she said. “We just shut all the doors and made sure everything was locked.”

She said they were all shocked when they learned someone had opened fire.

According to police, someone shot at a home, damaging a security door and front door, as well as the home’s siding and window seals.

So far, no arrests have been made in this shooting or the others reported.
