FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - Police in Fort Smith say five teenagers have been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a man in which more than 30 gunshots were fired.

Sgt. Daniel Grubbs says two 19-year-old men, an 18-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were arrested for committing a terroristic act and an 18-year-old woman was arrested on drug and weapons charges in connection with the Saturday night shooting death of 18-year-old Justin Lopez.

Grubbs says the four are in custody and additional charges are expected, but online court records do not show that formal charges have been filed against any of the suspects.

Police said previously that officers were called to a camping trailer in north Fort Smith about 10:30 p.m. Saturday where they found Lopez dead at the scene.
