TEXARKANA, AR (KSLA) -

Texarkana, AR police have made an arrest in Wednesday's deadly shooting in the 2800 block of Locust Street.

21-year-old Anthony King is charged with capital murder in the death of 25-year-old DeMarquis Reeves.

Reeves body was found inside the home on Locust St. Tuesday by officers responding to a call reporting shots fired there.

While they were there, another 911 call came in reporting a shooting at a home on Ashley St. on the Texas side of the city.

There, they found Devin White, 21, with multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to a local hospital.

Police say they have gathered evidence and information connecting the first 2 shootings, and that another shooting victim that showed up at the hospital later that night was also involved.

Police did not say whether King will be charged in connection with the shooting on Ashley St., but they do say more arrests are expected as the investigation continues.

Anyone with information is strongly urged to contact the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department at 903-798-3154 or Texarkana area CrimeStoppers at 903-793-STOP.
