MALVERN, Ark. — Police say the victim was home, when suspects made their way into a house, killing a man in front of his wife and child.

“People don’t usually get shot here, It’s a peaceful time,” says Bobby Thompson who lives in Malvern.

Along Edwards Street in Malvern is the scene of a crime Wednesday evening.

“It sounded like a fire cracker, but I know a fire cracker from a bullet,” says Thompson.

Malvern police say, multiple suspects forced their way into the home demanding items from the people living inside. One man was shot in the chest, and later died.

When a crime of this magnitude happens, we are eager to work any amount of hours it takes to solve the case,” says LT. Doye Delacruz from the Malvern Police Department.

Police say there are at least six suspects, one is a minor.

“Homicides are something that aren’t very common in the City of Malvern,” said LT. Delacruz.

“It’s pretty bad. I feel bad for his kids and wife,” said Thompson.

Police say a woman and child were in the house when the shooting happened.

“He was basically a family man. He was raising his kids and everything over here,” says Jason Smith a resident of Malvern.

Police aren’t releasing the victim’s name at this time, but Jason Smith says he was a good neighbor.

“He was a really good guy. Everyone liked him, you know, he had friends over here. He took care of me and my Momma,” says Smith.

Things may be peaceful on Edwards Street Friday, but police say the investigation is still on going.
