TEXARKANA, Ark. --Police continue to seek three suspects in a fatal shooting at a March block party.

Christopher Tyler, Tamarion Tyron McCoy and Antonio Benard Taylor Jr. are wanted on first-degree murder charges that are enhanced for engaging in violent group activity and unlawful discharging a firearm from a vehicle, according to Texarkana Arkansas Police Department.

The men should be considered armed and dangerous, police say.

"We are trying to keep this case fresh on people's minds," said Cpl. Les Munn, a spokesman for TAPD.

Michael Clark, 24, of Wake Village, Texas, died from a gunshot wound March 19 after being taking to a local hospital.

Earlier in the evening, police were dispatched to the area of Pinehurst and Grove streets because of traffic congestion. Police estimated between 60 to 100 vehicles were lined up on the streets.

The shooting happened about an hour after police went to the scene, according to TAPD.

A 6-year-old boy was shot in the leg during the gunfire. People at the scene were attempting to take the child to the hospital when they were in a wreck at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Hazel Street.

Three other suspects -- Kolbe Hemphill, Daequan Williams and Kheuma Gilliam -- have already been arrested in the case

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Tyler, McCoy and Taylor are asked to call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 903- 793- 7867.
