— A Little Rock man was shot twice and robbed of his car Sunday during an incident in the 3900 block of Springer Boulevard, authorities said.

Police say Stanley McClain, 38, was shot in the stomach and right arm by two men who then took his 1999 BMW 328. It happened shortly before 5 p.m.

McClain was taken to UAMS Medical Center, where he was listed in serious but stable condition Monday, police said.

Neither of the suspects tied to the shooting were found, but authorities did arrest one man a short time later after finding him in possession of one of McClain's credit cards.

According to a police report, investigators were dispatched about 7:30 p.m. to 22nd and Valmar streets after a vehicle matching McClain's was spotted in the area.

Police later found 22-year-old Andre Wright walking near Charles Bussey Avenue and Valmar Street. A search of his person revealed the credit card, the report said, and he was arrested on a charge of theft by receiving.

The stolen BMW was found empty but running at 19th and Martin streets.

I don't think this guy is a member of the NRA or has followed all the gun laws in effect. Lets's outlaw BMW's, Cadillacs, and Mercedes. That will stop all the crime for sure.

Well, we DO now know banning hoodies won't do it, even if THIS perp wore one. Why, the hit-and-run driver in Hillcrest was -- wait for it -- WHITE! That would certainly shock ADG commenters who think ALL crime in our fair city is committed by black men in hoodies...

When the suspects are not "described" that means they are black...

Wowy,

Some of the "white crimes" don't even make the paper. Real estate fraud, embezzlement of funds, and securities fraud etc. rarely make the paper. If the criminals are well connected, they don't even get prosecuted.

Has there been an arrest in the murder of the poor guy where Dustin McDaniel's girlfriend and her brother were found near the body? No. When is the ADG going to do a nice story on the status of this investigation? Inquiring minds want to know.

Crime is still out of control in LR and NLR, race has nothing to do with it. The police know the profiles but I guess they are afraid of using it for fear of the NRA, ACLU and NCAAP and other anti-social/common sense groups.

The problem is that police and prisons are expensive. It actually would be cheaper for the county and the cities to invest in better recreation, after school, and summer programs for the youth. When social services allows children to live with drug addicts and in squalor, the kids for sure will end up toting guns and robbing 711. Prosecute more parents for child neglect, and they would be less eager to have the kids so they can keep the checks coming. If the kids have good youth programs and schools to attend, they are more likely to keep out of trouble.

Hey Populist - Only a racist would view crime in terms of "white" or "black". Non-violent crimes seldom make the news although I've seen many articles on white collar crime in the business section. Does that help an "inquiring mind"? And stop attempting to divert attention to the problem of violent crime in America -a problem enhanced and facilitated by failed liberal social policies. A statistician would say these perps were likely male, 16 - 29 years old, high school dropouts, and born to an unwed mother. This particular demographic accounts for less than 1% of America's population but some 50% of violent crime convictions (data from 2010). Before we can fix the problem, we must first recognize where and why it exists. Your vote for BH Obama worsened the problem. You still bragging about that vote?
