— A 29-year-old Little Rock man has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a man and wounding of a woman inside an apartment on Green Mountain Drive.

Quenton Vernard Jones is facing charges of first-degree murder and criminal attempt to commit murder in the Jan. 3 shooting that killed 22-year-old Daniel Hill and injured 25-year-old Edwina Martin.

Jones was arrested without incident around 10 p.m. Sunday at his residence, 12 Fairbrook Dr.

Police say additional arrests are expected.

The shooting occurred shortly after 7 p.m. inside Martin's apartment at 1502 Green Mountain Drive.

Martin's mother told investigators that two men - including an ex-boyfriend of her daughter - followed her into the residence and then got into an argument with Hill. Betty Martin reportedly told police the men then fired several rounds at Hill and Edwina Martin, killing him and seriously injuring her.

Good job LRPD. What in God's name is going on with all these people killing others? Do they really not mind giving up their FUTURE for the sake of revenge? IF THEY LOCK UP ENOUGH OF THEM FOR LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE, MAYBE THE MESSAGE WILL GET OUT? Or do they want to be part of the Guiness Record for killings in 2012? Their 2 hrs. of fame?
