PINE BLUFF, Ark. — Pine Bluff police are investigating a shooting that left one man dead Friday, April 5.

Officers responded to reports of gunshots at the intersection of 26th Ave. and Orange Street around 6:30 p.m. Upon arrival, they found 22-year-old Detric Releford in the street suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. Releford died from his injuries.

Detectives are in the early stages of their investigation. No one has been arrested in connection with the case, according to the police department.

This is the 10th homicide in Pine Bluff so far this year. Eight of those cases remain unsolved.

"We are working diligently, trying to get as much information as possible as we can to get these homicides solved," Officer Deaunuana Roberts, a PBPD spokesperson, said.

Last month, the city council granted PBPD money to increase rewards for unsolved homicide cases, regardless of when they happened.
