Joseph Delonte Dudley Police are searching for a suspected gunman after a 45-year-old man was fatally shot in Pine Bluff early Saturday.

Officers responding to a shooting call at 5004 W. Barraque St. at about 2:15 a.m. found the victim suffering from a single gunshot wound outside the residence, according to a news release by the Pine Bluff Police Department.

Jefferson County Coroner Chad Kelley said the victim, identified as Demetrius Foreman of Pine Bluff, was pronounced dead shortly after 3 a.m.
