BLYTHEVILLE, Ark. — Two people were shot Friday evening in Blytheville, and their infant was with them when it happened.

The victims told police they drove to Blytheville from Caruthersville, Missouri, to buy a vehicle they saw on social media.

They said they went to the Clarksdale apartments at Walls Street and Ruddle Road to meet with the man selling the car, but he took out a gun and shot at their car.

When police got the call, the victims were already driving to Great River Medical Center. From there, they were transported to Regional Medical Center, police said.
