JONESBORO, Arkansas (AP) — Arkansas police say a man suspected of fatally shooting two people inside a home and a worker at a business has been found dead inside a stopped car.

Jonesboro Sgt. Doug Formon says a man and a 13-year-old girl were killed Saturday afternoon inside the residence in east Jonesboro. Four people — including two boys — were injured and were taken to hospitals in Memphis, Tennessee.

Formon says it appeared a family was having a party or gathering.

A few minutes later, authorities responded to a shooting at a business near a U.S. highway where a worker was found shot to death.

The man Formon says is the suspected gunman was found in the driver’s seat of a stopped car. It wasn’t clear if the gunshot was self-inflicted.
