Pine Bluff, ARArkansas Online
The number is staggering -- and frustrating -- for Pine Bluff-area residents. Counting a killing that occurred just outside the city limits, six homicides have happened in the area within a six-day span that began last Saturday. Five of them were shootings. Four of them happened on four straight days. Four of them happened within a 1.3-mile radius, and investigations in three of those -- including one that took the life of a 14-year-old girl -- have not yet revealed a suspect.
