Texarkana Police Investigating Fatal Shooting Over The Weekend
Texarkana Police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred over the weekend at an apartment complex located in the 1300 block of Pine Street. The shooting took place early Saturday (June 13) morning.
According to the press release, Quentin Minniefield, 48, of Texarkana, Texas, died at the scene after being shot multiple times by Robert Moore, 40, of Texarkana Texas, at Moore's apartment. Texarkana Arkansas Police arrested Moore minutes later at a relative’s home in the 3500 block of County Avenue without incident.
Officers responded to the report of a shooting there at approximately 3:30AM June 13 and discovered Minniefield laying on the stairs outside of Moore’s apartment. He had multiple gunshot wounds to his body and was pronounced deceased soon afterward. A witness told officers that Moore answered a knock at his apartment door and immediately began shooting at MInniefield as he opened the door. Moore fled the scene on foot before officers arrived.
While a motive in the murder is not yet known, detectives have learned that the two men knew each other. Moore was transported to the Miller County Jail by Texarkana Arkansas Police. A Murder warrant has been obtained by detectives and will be served upon his extradition back to Texas in the next few days.
