Police have said about 50 people attended the wedding Saturday along Piney Creek, known in the community as a good place to picnic or swim on a hot day. Duvall apparently opened fire with a 9 mm pistol without knowing the bride or groom, both of whom suffered gunshot wounds during the attack.

Prosecutor David Gibbons identified three victims of the shooting as groom Mike Beavers, bride Melissa Beavers and a second man as Russell Collins. He declined to name the fourth victim. The prosecutor said the judge ordered Duvall not to have any contact with the three shooting victims if he made bond.

Gibbons said the investigation into the shooting is continuing.

A judge has set a $500,000 bond for a man accused of shooting four people at an outdoor wedding in rural Pope County.
Patrick Paul Duvall, 29, of Russellville appeared Wednesday for a short hearing before Judge Don Bourne. Sheriff's deputies said Duvall remained in Pope County jail.

The prosecutor said the judge ordered Duvall not to have any contact with the three shooting victims if he made bond.
Gibbons said the investigation into the shooting is continuing.
"Apparently, there was some altercation of some nature prior to the shooting, but just prior to the shooting," Gibbons said. "We're still trying to figure out what precipitated that."
At the bond hearing, Pope County sheriff's investigator Stephen Pack testified that Duvall told him the fight started after his fiancee told him she saw a couple engaged in a "lewd act" at the creek. An argument between Duvall's fiancee and two other women turned violent and Duvall said several men attacked him, Pack said.
Pack said Duvall feared for his life and admitted to shooting at those at the wedding party.
Roy Beavers, the groom's brother, said it appeared Duvall was firing randomly into the crowd.
"I'm not sure he really meant to hit anyone," Beavers told the Russellville Courier newspaper Wednesday.
The Pope County public defender's office said Wednesday they had not been assigned to Duvall's case. Gibbons said he did not know if Duvall had spoken to a lawyer since his arrest. A call to a phone number for Duvall listed on a police report said the phone had been disconnected.
In an interview Tuesday, Melissa Beavers spoke to Little Rock television station KLRT in a hospital gown from a room at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. A large, deep red laceration showed across her forehead, part of her hair cut away.
Beavers blamed the fight on a disagreement about dogs the family had at the creek.
"All I know is I got shot in the head. And it just grazed my head. My head's real sore," Beavers said. "I was devastated. I didn't know what had happened."
Duvall faces four counts of first-degree felony battery, which each carry a maximum prison sentence of 20 years and a $15,000 fine. Duvall also faces a felony vehicle-theft charge.
Duvall's next court appearance is scheduled for June 16.
