JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A 28-year-old Jonesboro man is behind bars after police accused him of shooting two people.

Medon Domeshio Waters was arrested Wednesday, Feb. 8, according to online records.

A probable cause affidavit explained on Tuesday, Jan. 31, Jonesboro police found a black passenger car in the middle of the road on Main Street.

When they arrived, officers found two people, Kenneth Vann and Samantha Marcusen, suffering with gunshot wounds.

Police spoke to Marcusen later that day, who said they were in a conversation with someone when another person, later confirmed by Vann as Waters, got into an argument with Vann.

The affidavit explained Waters then pulled out a firearm and shot at both Vann and Marcusen.

On Thursday, Feb. 9, a judge found probable cause to charge Waters with first-degree battery and possession of a firearm by certain persons.

He was given a bond of $250,000 and a court date of Thursday, March 30.

A week after the shooting, Vann spoke with Region 8 News about how it affected his ability to move. He is hoping to start physical therapy soon to get back on the job.
