HOPE, AR (KSLA) - Two people have been arrested in Hope, Arkansas for their alleged roles in a home invasion and shooting.
Earlier this month, officers were called to a home in the 800 block of South Laurel Street on a report that 2 people had been shot.
When officers arrived, they found 47-year-old Mary Stuckey and her 23-year-old son Jordan Stuckey suffering from gunshot wounds. The victims reportedly told police that two men kicked in their front door and demanded money from them.
Mary Stuckey said she and her son were asleep when the two men broke in and first made contact with Jordan Stuckey.
"He had a gun to my head and I just gave him the money. I thought that was the best thing to do at that point and time," said Jordan Stuckey.
Mary Stuckey was in a different room and said she was awaken by a suspect standing over her with a shirt over his face.
"He was beating on me so we struggled a little bit. I fought him and he fought me. I managed to run out the house and while I came out of the house, that is when he shot me in my back," explained Mary Stuckey.
Jordan Stuckey was struck in the shoulder and thigh. Mary Stuckey was struck in the lower back. Both were taken to area hospitals and later released.
On Friday, Sept. 11, officers with the Hope Police Department arrested 23-year-old Tevin McKillion and 26-year-old Jordan Williams, both of Hope, for their alleged roles in the crime.
Both McKillion and Williams were taken to the Hempstead County Detention Facility where they were charged with aggravated residential burglary, aggravated robbery, batter 1st degree and interference with emergency communications.
"The investigation is actively being pursued and other arrests may be pending," said Kim Tomlin, Assistant Chief of the Hope Police Department.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to call the Hope Police Department at 870-777-3434.
