The Texarkana, TX Police Department is seeking the public’s help in locating a suspect in the shooting of two men early this morning at a Waffle House on N. Stateline Ave in Texarkana.

According to the TTPD, officers responded to the Waffle House after a call reporting the shooting. They found two men on scene who suffered gunshot wounds. One had been shot in the chest, the other shot in the back and arm. Officers immediately started emergency aid until medical personnel arrived on scene.
