— Authorities said Friday morning that a burglary suspect had been shot by a Little Rock police dectective.

Sgt. Cassandra Davis said officers responded to burglary in progress about 9:40 a.m. at 4521 W. 16th St. and noticed one man loading items from the duplex into a gray Toyota Camry, driven by a second person. Both suspects fled the scene in the vehicle, and officers pursued them.

The suspects stopped in an alley near South Brown Street, where the chase continued on foot. One suspect appeared to surrender before he purportedly charged one of the officers, Davis said. The officers, who Davis declined to identify, said a struggle ensued. The second officer shot the suspect after it appeared he was attempting to take hold of the first officer's firearm.

The second individual was later arrested without incident.

The deceased suspect was identified as Michael W. Daniel, 25, of 1504 S. Pine St. The second suspect, identified as Marcus Davis, 26, of 4115 S. Malloy St. has been charged with capital murder, theft, fleeing and burglary.

Davis said the officers involved in the shooting have been placed on paid leave. One of the officers received minor injuries in the incident.

death penalty for robbery seems a bit harsh, but maybe robber was armed and aimed gun at cop? Either way - guessing this will stop robberies in that neighborhood...

Does my heart good. At least there will be no money wasted on him in court or jail or whatever. You have to weigh the risk when you do the crime.

He had choices that day. When you put yourself in a bad situation doing the wrong things, bad things can happen to you. Other wise we will just open the doors and let em come on in take and do what they want! Choices, choices, choices.

A great day for the hard working L.R. Police Department. Another Skunk off the streets and no money spent holding, coddling, clothing, feeding, doing his laundry, paying for his heat bill and no Lawyer bill - and all for less than a quarter. AND he will not be back to scare good people.

I wonder what excuse he is conjuring to present to his Maker right now?

Sounds like somebody's occupational hazzards caught up with them. Good riddance.

I am quite surprised at how many people are so hard hearted towards another human being and gladly wishing death on him. Whatever choices the burgaler made did result in his demise, but what if that was your son, husband, brother, or father? Would you be so quick to be so hateful? Or would you appreciate people being so callous towards him? You have no idea what life was like for that person or what caused him to become what he was. What pains me is how negative and mean people are towards each other. Where is the love and compassion for another human or his family? A hateful attitude and ill feelings towards another person is as bad as not having any respect for another person and his/her belongings.

southrnbelle, all the negativity probably comes as the result of our failed justice system. Honest, hardworking taxpayers are tired of the leniency shown in our courts. If this man had been caught, he would have likely been back on the streets in a few weeks or months preying on someone else.
