HOT SPRINGS, Ark. — Police in Hot Springs say one suspect has been arrested and a second has been identified in a shooting that wounded five people.

Police Cpl. Kirk Zaner said Friday that a 23-year-old man was arrested on five counts of first-degree battery and is jailed on $250,000 bond. Zaner said an arrest warrant is being sought for the second suspect.

Zaner said the victims were found shortly before 7 p.m. Thursday both inside and outside a home on the city’s west side. He said the five are a 19-year-old woman and four males aged 17, 20, 23 and 53.

Their conditions were not released.
