FORT SMITH (KFSM)- One man is dead and another man is hospitalized after a shooting Saturday night (Sept. 27), according to police. The family said it was Chris Morris who was killed during a fight at his home.
Authorities on Monday (Sept. 28) said they were searching for three juvenile males considered to be suspects in the incident. Investigators said they know who the juveniles are but have not caught them yet.
Fort Smith police said the shooting happened after five people were involved in a fight at a home at the intersection of North 21st and L streets.
"We were in the living room,"said neighbor Crystal Jackson. "We heard some gun shots, maybe like five or six of them."
Two of the men were brothers, according to reports. One brother is said to have gone inside of their home and retrieved a shotgun, which was later used to kill him.
"The girls were screaming, saying, 'My daddy has been shot,'" said a neighbor.
According to a family friend John Worst, "There were some problems earlier in the day with some family members."
The family said his 14-year-old daughter was standing next to Morris when he was shot.
The family said Morris' brother, Herbert, who was injured, is in stable condition and is expected to pull through.
