JONESBORO, AR -- Jonesboro Police are investigating two shootings that left four people dead and four hurt Saturday afternoon.

According to investigators, emergency crews received a call just after 1:00 p.m. reporting a shooting inside a house on Moore Road in east Jonesboro.

There, responders found six shooting victims.

A man and 13-year-old girl died on the scene.

Four others were shot, including a man and woman and two boys, ages 10 and 8.

A second shooting occurred on Dalton Farmer Drive near U.S. 63 and is believed to be connected to the first shooting.

There, police found a construction worker dead with a gunshot wound.

About two hours after the first shooting, a man was found in a vehicle on County Road 642 with what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
