— A 35-year-old man was arrested Thursday on accusations he shot a woman and then fled the scene.

The North Little Rock Police Department says Walter Jamille Randolph was taken into custody on a traffic stop about 3 p.m., shortly after the shooting at an apartment at 1414 W. 20th St. There was no word on the motive in the shooting.

The victim, Charnette Smith, told authorities she was shot by a man she didn't know who then left in a white sport utility vehicle, according to a police report. Smith was taken to UAMS Medical Center, though the report did not indicate how serious her injuries were.

Shortly after the shooting, officers stopped a vehicle matching the description for driving recklessly at 20th and Franklin streets, the report said. Police say a revolver with five rounds loaded and one spent shell casing was found under the passenger seat where Randolph was sitting.

He was taken into custody and Smith identified him as the gunman from a photo lineup, police said.

The driver of the SUV said she was asleep in the vehicle when Randolph screamed for her to get in the driver seat while running from the residence, according to the report.

Randolph is reportedly a felon with a conviction out of Indiana.

"Randolph is reportedly a felon with a conviction out of Indiana."

Nice.. thank you Indiana for sending us your trash...

But in all seriousness - where did he get the gun (convicted felons are not allowed to buy firearms)? Someone sold it to him, or provided it to him.

Further - the driver of the getaway vehicle... why no mention of that person? Accomplice/accessory after the crime at minimum.

Where did he get the gun? I am going to go WAAAAYYYY out on a tiny limb and say he stole it or got it from another criminal like himself. We need more gun laws, don't we? They work swell.
