Little Rock police find Friday, May 10, 2013, a red SUV stolen by three suspects who had demanded a ride of two men at the EZ Mart at 12th and Woodrow streets before one of the men turned up dead.

Little Rock police are investigating the city's 12th homicide of the year after a man was found lying dead at 11th and Woodrow streets early Friday.

Officers were called about 5:10 a.m. to a report of a shooting that had occurred near Fourth and Woodrow streets, Little Rock Police Department Sgt. Cassandra Davis said.

There, the police report states, officers talked to 22-year-old Tyler Hodges, of Little Rock, who said he and a friend, 18-year-old Forrest Abrams, of Fayetteville, were getting gasoline at the EZ Mart at 12th and Woodrow streets when three black males approached them with a gun and demanded a ride.

The three jumped into Abrams' small, red sport utility vehicle and drove to Fourth and Woodrow streets, where Hodges said he got out and went inside a residence, according to the police report. Davis said it's unclear why he went inside the home.

The three black males drove off with Abrams still inside the vehicle, and Hodges said he then called police, the report states. Police found Abrams lying dead in the road at 11th and Woodrow.

The stolen SUV has been recovered, Little Rock police said Friday morning without elaborating.

The three suspects are each black: One was described as about 5 feet 10, 150 pounds, dark-skinned and wearing dark clothes; the second was described as 6 feet tall, 130 pounds, with short hair, wearing a gray hoodie and bluejeans; and the third was described as 6 feet tall, about 240 pounds, with a medium skin tone.

Yeah, why didn't white male #1 call the cops when he "went into the residence" after being carjacked? Aren't WM #1 and WM #2 "friends"? Why can #1 not identify his friend? Why is #1 not identified in article?

ItsAllGoin2DaDawgs, to funny. Hoodies are now a trademark for thugs. It just amazes me how many thugs wear hoodies. Anytime I see someone wearing one, I suspect them to be a bad person. What's more is when you see someone wearing one and it's warm or hot out, dead give away.

There is more to this.... nothing to do with Hoodies... more to do with drugs and 2 white men in the hood trying to by drugs. .. Drugs get more people killed than Hoodies..

I'm confused... where does it say that the car jacking victims are white?

To those who are asking, the previous version of this article described the victims as white males. This was before a police report identified them. The story has been updated to reflect the victims' identities rather than their descriptions.
