West Memphis Police investigators asked the public for leads after a Friday night shots fired call turned into a homicide investigation. Patrol officers responded to the area of the 1600 Block of East Barton on a hot midsummer night, June 18 at about 10:30 P.M. in reference to shots being fired.

Captain Troy Galtelli reported what officers discovered.

“Upon arrival officers observed a vehicle in a driveway with the headlights on and the engine still running and then located a victim with apparent gunshot wound,” said Galtelli. “The individual was unresponsive at the time of the officers’ arrival.”

Police dispatched city medics who in turn delivered a grim report.

“EMS was contacted and made the scene,” said Galtelli. “The victim was pronounced deceased on the scene.”
