— A 17-year-old girl was killed and two teens hurt when shots rang out Wednesday night at a Little Rock business.

Little Rock Police Department Sgt. Cassandra Davis said in a statement that the shooting happened shortly before 10 p.m. outside the Site Store at 4203 Asher Ave.

There, police found 17-year-old girls Jasmine Simone Young and Sydney Blocker suffering from gunshot wounds and learned a third victim, 19-year-old Kyron Richardson, had already been taken to the hospital in a private vehicle.

Young was taken to UAMS Medical Center, where she was later pronounced dead. The conditions of the other two victims were described only as non-life threatening.

Davis said the victims were shot while inside a white Chevy Tahoe. A fourth person in the vehicle was not hit.

Police say the gunman was a black male in a gold car. His motive isn't known.

Given the location I'm betting they were holding out on their pimp.

Very sad. The NRA is now trying to move this type of violence into the sanctuaries of churches in Arkansas.
