LITTLE ROCK, AR – Little Rock police hope surveillance video can help them find the man who shot and killed Arkansas Baptist College student Derek Olivier on Thursday.
Little Rock homicide detectives scoured the area around 16th and Bishop on Friday just hours after someone shot two students while they changed a tire on campus.
Derek Olivier, 19, of New Iberia, LA was killed. Classmate Courtney Henry, 20, was grazed but not seriously injured. Both students are listed as players on the Arkansas Baptist College football team.
Students on Friday were talking about the shooting and feelings of safety. Marcus Jackson says he can’t forget what he saw the night before.
"I heard six gunshots. And when I heard the shots, the dude that shot him ran through the campus with the gun in his hand," Jackson says.
Arkansas Baptist College president Dr. Fitz Hill says the shooting is part of a more systemic problem, one he characterizes as black on black crime.
"We know that it was another black person that shot a black student,” Hill says. “That's a problem. You can paint it any color you want to, that's real. I will not run from the truth, that must be addressed."
Hill says 24-hour security is already on a campus that serves about 1000 students, 350 of which live in dorms right across the street from the shooting.
"We never worried about somebody going across the street and being unsafe," Hill says.
Students say it's not enough.
"We're paying our money to be safe,” Angelique Edwards says. “Some of our students come here from out of town. And it's just a shame these parents have to come back and get their child, their bodies."
And until detectives make an arrest, that sense of safety will be hard to get back.
Olivier was a freshman at Arkansas Baptist College.
Curt Landry, principal at New Iberia High School in Louisiana says Olivier helped out in the front office his senior year.
“Derek was neat, polite, respectful and had good grades. He was just an all around good kid,” Landry says.
