The Little Rock Police Department is offering up to $1,000 for information about a man believed to be involved with a shooting that left a 26-year-old man dead on Christmas Eve.

Police seek Jamar Jordan, 20, of Little Rock in connection to the slaying of Little Rock resident Austin Burks. Police found Burks suffering from at least one gunshot wound inside a parked car outside a home at 1505 Adams St., the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.

"Right now, [Jordan is] our primary lead and we're focusing our energies in getting him into custody so we can interview him," department spokesman Lt. Sidney Allen said.

Allen said police believe Jordan did not act alone in Burks' killing and that two people were involved in the shooting. He said Jordan was developed as a suspect after witnesses pointed his photo out in a lineup of possible shooters.

Authorities do not suspect Jordan was involved with a fatal shooting that occurred in the area less than 40 hours earlier, Allen said. Police found Verico Ingram, 26, inside his parked Cadillac Deville that was still running in the 4200 block of West 15th Street after the department received reports of shots fired in the area.

A 15-year-old boy from Little Rock was arrested and charged with capital murder Thursday afternoon after he turned himself in to police, the department said. That shooting was a "robbery that went bad," according to Allen.

Police describe Jordan as a black man standing about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing about 170 pounds. His last known address is 605 Pine St. in Little Rock.

Police said Jordan should be considered "armed and dangerous." Anyone with information about Jordan is asked to contact detective Brad Silas at (501) 371-4784.
