In the first two days of the new year, two shootings have killed two and injured five. Jonesboro Police Chief Rick Elliot says both incidents are under investigation. He says what is slowing progress is not getting needed information from the public.
“The problem the police department faces are a lack of cooperation from the victims and the witnesses,” said Elliot. “This is a problem that many other police departments across the nation face.”
Elliot urged citizens to work with Jonesboro police on these and future investigations.
