LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A man has been taken into custody in connection to a shooting and then fleeing.

On August 9, at 11:24 p.m. officers with the Little Rock police department were at the Pit Stop on Baseline Road when they heard gunshots. Officers saw a white Dodge Ram pickup leaving the scene at a high rate of speed going East on Baseline Road.

Officers then saw 25-year-old, Arthur Palos-Bahena running eastbound on Baseline Road. A large crowd of people started to point towards him telling officers “It was him, he shot him.”

Arthur was charged with fleeing. This investigation is still ongoing. If you have any information regarding this event, you are asked to contact LRPD.
