HOPE, AR (KSLA) - Two men accused of shooting up several homes and injuring a man in Hope, Arkansas have turned themselves in, according to Hope police.

Warrants were issued last week for 21-year-old Patrick Powell and 25-year-old Devonte Barker, charging them both with aggravated assault.

Hope police say they believe the men are connected to several shootings that damaged at least 4 homes in the Oak and Walker Streets area around 9:00 p.m. Thursday night.

Authorities say 24-year-old Joseph Harris, of Texarkana, was injured in the shootings. He was taken to Wadley Regional Medical Center with gunshot wounds in both legs.

Both suspects are now awaiting their first court appearances.
