— A 42-year-old North Little Rock man is accused of opening fire during an incident Wednesday night.

Jonathan Durwood Pennington is due in court later Thursday on charges including aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a certain person.

Authorities say they were called about 9:10 p.m. to the area of East Broadway and Redwood streets in reference to shots being fired in the area.

According to a North Little Rock Police Department arrest report, investigators met up with Jacksonville residents Tricia Fleming and Eddie T. Davis, who indicated a man shot a single round while they were parked at 2800 E. Broadway St. Neither was hit.

Davis told police that the same man had pulled two handguns on him on the sidewalk.

The report did not specify a possible motive.

The victims described the gunman and directed police to a nearby residence where he went after shooting, the report said.

Police found Pennington inside. They say he acknowledged possessing a pistol while making contact with Davis but said he "never pulled it out."

The gun was not found.

Newsflash: It's never a good idea to be parked and sitting in a car at 2800 E. Broadway, especially at night. What are 2 Jacksonville residents doing there in the first place? I'm sure they were passing out Gideon Bibles or collecting for the Salvation Army.
