Gunman kills 3 in Arkansas shootings – theguardian.com

Police said on Sunday a gunman who shot and killed three people and injured four in north-east Arkansas was an acquaintance or friend, but a motive was unknown.

Sergeant Doug Formon of Jonesboro police said the shooter was 40-year-old Porfirio Hernandez, who recently had been released from a mental-health treatment facility.

A 38-year-old man and a 12-year-old girl were killed on Saturday afternoon at a home in Jonesboro, and four others were injured. About 20 minutes later, police received a call about a shooting at a business, where a 31-year-old man was found dead.
