HELENA-WEST HELENA, AR -

(WMC-TV) - Investigators in Phillips County, Arkansas are searching for the gunmen responsible for three shootings.

One victim was killed after three shootings, two in Helena-West Helena, Arkansas and one in Phillips County.

Investigators said 22-year-old Devin Williams was driving when suspects shot at him and killed him.  One man was injured after a house with two infants inside was shot up.  Another house in Helena-West Helena was also shot up, but no one was injured.

"We've been having some issues over the past several months," said Assistant Chief Ronald Scott with the Helena-West Helena Police.  "We contribute it to some small type of gang activity."

Williams' family gathered Tuesday at the house in Helena-West Helena where he lived with his parents.

"He was a good person," said friend Trinity Pyron.  "He didn't do nothing to nobody."

Police are searching for two suspects, LaKeithon Moody and Eugene Starr, Jr., in the shootings.  Investigators said they have a lengthy record and should be considered dangerous.

"We've had several encounters with these individuals," said Scott.
