HELENA-WEST HELENA, Ark. -- The teen killed on Easter Sunday has been identified by police.

Fifteen-year-old Quantazious Stringer was in the 100 block of North Fourth Street when shots were fired.

He was discovered by first responders on the front porch and pronounced dead a short time later.

Three persons of interest are in custody, but so far no charges have been filed.

Police told WREG this could be gang retaliation, but they are not sure if Stringer was the intended target.

"There was a lot of shooting going. Even with the police around, they was still shooting," said Demario Williams, who heard the gunshots.

Williams said it's not unusual to find groups of teens sitting out on the porch, and he says sometimes, it leads to trouble.

"They had guns. Last year, they was just shooting ridiculous from that spot right there all on the porch."
