1001 S. Monroe St.

Three people were charged in a shooting that occurred Sunday night at a Little Rock home where gunfire was exchanged with police officers, authorities said.

Vandorian Pittman, 22; Jamie Clayton, 20; and Etavious Smith, 19 were charged Monday in the shooting, which occurred around 9:45 p.m. at a home at 1001 S. Monroe St.

All three were charged with two counts of aggravated assault, a felony, while Clayton was additionally charged with one count of possession of a firearm by certain persons, a misdemeanor. Smith was also charged with failure to appear, according to the police report.

At about the time of the incident, police received a 911 call reporting that two people were taking pictures of themselves holding long guns on the porch of the home on S. Monroe, according to a previous statement by Little Rock police spokesman Sgt. Cassandra Davis.

Officers Barry Kingston, Eric Hollister, Brian Osmundson and Michael Malone responded to the scene, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.

When officers arrived, they saw two black men run inside the house and then heard gunshots from near the house, police said. Kingston and Hollister returned fire, and once the gunfire stopped, Pittman, Clayton, Smith and a woman — identified as Roxcena Smith, 42 — emerged from the home and were arrested, police said.

Clayton had been shot in the foot, and Kingston suffered a graze wound on the right leg, authorities said.

A SWAT team was called to sweep the home to find the guns reported in the initial 911 call, but the weapons haven't been recovered, police said.

Police will investigate who was shot with what type of weapon and how many rounds each person fired, Davis said.

They might absorb the lesson about police shooting back if the police were better shots and actually hit some of them. And I don't mean in the leg.

We helped build that library and I've commented on various occasions about the location. I guess if it helps one child it's for the greater good...

The neighborhood kids can hide in the library to escape the gunfire.
