NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR – North Little Rock Police responded to a home invasion Monday morning where two people were shot.
According to police, just after 5:30am Monday at least two people forced their way into a home at 6605 Wind Hill and shot two victims in the home. The suspects left the scene in a Hummer.
Charlie Clinkscales was found in the driveway with a single head wound, a gash in his right palm, and red flesh wound on his back between his shoulder blades.
Fabian Deleon was found in the home. He had what appeared to be two bullet wounds - one in the upper left shoulder area and one near the lower back side. He also had blood and swelling on his face. Deleon was taken to UAMS for non-life threatening wounds. He would not cooperate with police according to police report.
"This is a home invasion. That's serious," said Bill Jennings, a neighbor.
Jennings lives across the street but slept through the commotion. He heard about it when he woke up.
"My next door neighbor woke up at 5 this morning. Didn't know what woke him up but apparently that's the time the shots rang out at that house," said Jennings.
Because the early morning ambush happened while many slept, information on suspects and clues are limited.
"Until we're able to find out who lives there and who doesn't and get that information, I'm not sure if anything was taken at this point," said Sgt. Brian Dedrick, spokesman for the North Little Rock Police Department.
Sergeant Brian Dedrick said some of the people in the house did see something, but no word yet on their accounts. Neighbors hope police solve this soon to weed out the crime in their subdivision and restore peace.
"I don't wish anything bad to happen to anybody but neighborhoods don't need that kind of problem," said Jennings.
