LITTLE ROCK, Ark – One person has been arrested, according to Little Rock police, after shots were fired at three Mount St. Mary students in an off-campus incident.
According to investigators, the students were on their way to a team practice around 6 a.m. Thursday morning when they noticed a suspicious vehicle following them.
Police say shots were fired at the student’s car after pulling into a hotel parking lot, but it wasn’t hit and no one was injured.

assault. He is now in the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility.
The students were not hurt and the vehicle was undamaged.
