Arrest made in Trumann shooting

Friday, May 25, 2018

A man was arrested by Trumann police Sunday following a home invasion and shooting of a 15-year-old last week.

According to Trumann Police Chief Chad Henson, officers were dispatched to the 400 block of Arrowhead Road around 12:30 a.m. on May 18 in reference to a shooting. Upon arrival, they found a 15-year-old girl suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. She was transported to a Memphis hospital, where she was listed in critical condition. After surgery, the family reported she was in a stable condition.

Police canvassed several fields and residences looking for the shooter and interviewed the family and victim after she recovered.

On May 20, Seth Mullins, 25, of Bay was arrested in connection with the home invasion and shooting. Chief Henson said Mullins will be charged with Criminal Attempt to Commit First Degree Murder and Aggravated Residential Burglary.

In a press release Chief Henson sent out following the arrest, he said, "Trumann Police Department is very aware of the violence this community has witnessed in the past few weeks. We strive to make our community aware of the predators and drugs that threaten the safety of our citizens. Our department would be remiss if we didn't take a moment to remind citizens that if you have prescription narcotics, specifically opioids, inside your homes or vehicles, please dispose of them when you are through taking them. Selling these surplus pills is a crime, and it is killing our community. Our department will do everything in our power to ward off criminals who will harm us, especially breaking into our homes in an effort to steal pills and hurt our children."

Chief Henson also asked that anyone who knows of Mullins' movements and/or whereabouts during last week contact the Trumann Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at 870-483-6423 or
