TEXARKANA, Ark. (KSLA) - Police have arrested a man assumed to be involved in a drive-by shooting and car crash.

Trenkale Brunson, 29, was arrested by the Texarkana Police Department (TPD) on June 20 at 8:30 p.m.

Brunson allegedly shot at another vehicle in the 300 block of MLK Boulevard, causing the vehicle to veer off the road and crash into a home. The driver and passenger of the vehicle were both taken to a local hospital. When officials arrived on scene, the driver was pronounced dead. On June 22, the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department identified the deceased victim as Robert Miller, 37.

Authorities then began a search for the suspect, who they believed was armed and dangerous.
