Larry Ishmon

— Authorities have arrested a college student in an attempted robbery and shooting at a Little Rock convenience store.

Police records show Larry Demond Ishmon, 21, was arrested Tuesday night on charges of aggravated robbery, attempted murder and first-degree battery.

Ishmon is accused of twice shooting a clerk early Tuesday at the E-Z Mart at 11724 Rainwood Road. The clerk, who was shot in the face and the back, is expected to survive.

Police say Ishmon tried unsuccessfully to get cash out of the register before fleeing.

Ishmon didn't speak during a brief video appearance Wednesday in Little Rock District Court. An innocent plea was entered on his behalf, and Judge Alice Lightle set his bail at $500,000.

Prosecutors said the victim picked Ishmon from a photo lineup after police received a tip from a caller who identified Ishmon as the suspect. The tip came after police on Tuesday released surveillance images from the store.

A public defender representing Ishmon at the hearing said he is a student at Arkansas Baptist College studying business management.

Little Rock Police Department Sgt. Cassandra Davis said Ishmon was arrested about 10:15 p.m. Tuesday on a traffic stop near 24th and Adams streets.

So I heard President Obama say in the debate last night that the solution to crime and street violence was to get guns off the streets and - especially - offer young people an alternative through education. If young people can see a future by affording them a college education, he said we can change the culture. I guess this is a case where worlds collide.

"Ishmon didn't speak during a brief video appearance Wednesday in Little Rock District Court. An innocent plea was entered on his behalf, and Judge Alice Lightle set his bail at $500,000."

And yet another waste of taxpayer money and the court's time - dude - you were CAUGHT ON TAPE. You are GUILTY. There is no "defense" for what you did, and you had better be glad your victim survived your brutal attack.

So - this is a "college student" - who's been paying his tuition and other expenses? I'm going to throw a wild guess out - and say "taxpayers"....

Well, look on the bright side. If he gets a good education and a high paying job, he can afford an more expensive gun to shoot people with. Shoot him in the face and see how he likes that!!!!!!!!!!
