A woman who lives in the area said this she is not surprised by the news. She said, “unfortunately I am not shocked and that’s just sad.”
The woman said that when she heard the news of the shooting, she rushed home.

The woman who lives nearby said, “another incident of gun violence. it’s just heartbreaking on every level from the macro to the micro.”
The woman said that this hits a little too close to home.
“It’s unnerving… I mean I probably won’t rest well,” she said.
She said she only has one plea for everybody.
“Find another way, just find another way,” she said.
Little Rock Police stated that the investigation is still ongoing and they urge anyone with information about the incident to call 501-371-4636.
