Officers were sent to the 2400 block of Saracen Street after receiving a report of gunshots being fired in the area, according to the initial police report from Officer Donald Griffin.


When police arrived, they found a red Chevrolet Cavalier with a man, later identified as Goins leaning toward the right passenger side, bleeding from his face and unresponsive.


A second call from police dispatchers reported that the driver of the car was in a nearby cemetery waiting on police to contact him. While searching the cemetery, police located a man, later identified as Miller, about 100 yards from the crime scene waving a cell phone.


Miller told police he "was just driving and had picked up a friend when a white Impala started firing at his vehicle," Miller said.


Police reported that while they were at the scene, they heard a noise from the woods and a man later identified as Womack "stumbled out of the woods."


Griffin said in the report what when Womack, 34, was handcuffed, he was carrying numerous pills, a bottle filled with a "strong intoxicant," and $132 cash.


Womack was taken to the adult detention center. According to the intake log there, he was being held on probable cause of possession of a controlled substance.


This was the second homicide of the year in Pine Bluff.
