PINE BLUFF, AR – Police have identified a suspect and victims in a shooting that left one dead and three others injured Friday night.

According to police, the incident began with a robbery attempt near Expressway and University Drive where 28-year-old Hal Johnson was shot. The gunman, later identified as 26-year-old Courtney Lewis, reportedly got away in a car, which he later wrecked then fled the scene on foot. Lewis then attempted to break into a vehicle containing two women and two children. When he could not get into the vehicle, he fired shots into it, hitting one woman in the hand and the other in the leg. Neither of the children were harmed.

Police say Lewis then stole another vehicle, fatally shooting the driver, 51-year-old Kenneth Donnell Davis. Lewis later wrecked that vehicle as well and was captured by police. He was taken to the hospital where he attempted to escape, but was quickly recaptured.

The other three victims are being treated for their injuries, which are considered non-life threatening.

Lewis was arrested and charged with Capital Murder, Possession of a firearm, three counts of first degree battery and seven counts of Committing a terroristic act. Police say additional charges may be possible.

The investigation is ongoing.
