HELENA-WEST HELENA, Ark. — Police have locked up three people for the murder of 15-year-old Quantizious Stringer.

The shooting happened Easter Sunday in the 100 block of North Fourth Street in Helena-West Helena.

A witness told police people in a car shot at a porch where Stringer was sitting with another person.

The other person made it into the house when he heard the gunshots, but Stringer was shot multiple times. He died on the scene, police said.
