Suspect accused in Sunday shooting


A $50,000 bond was set Tuesday for a Pine Bluff man who allegedly shot another man Sunday.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge Tracy Gardner, 33, with first-degree battery.

Police interviewed the victim, Terrance Calloway, 23, in the emergency room of Jefferson Regional Medical Center, where he had been taken by a friend Sunday morning.

According to the police report, Calloway told police he was at a store in the 2900 block of West 28th Avenue and a group of black males began shooting at him and his friends in the parking lot, and he was hit while sitting in a vehicle. Calloway suffered a gunshot wound to the right hip.

Police reported that the car had two bullet holes in the front passenger side door and the passenger side front window had been shot out.

Gardner was identified as a suspect during the investigation.

In addition to setting the bond, Kearney ordered Gardner to have no contact with Calloway until the case is settled.

The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Gardner.
