Little Rock police are investigating after a woman was found shot in the face Monday night at her home.
Officers responded about 8:30 p.m. to a report of gunshots at a home at 5700 Southwick Drive, according to a Little Rock Police Department report. There, they found Kendra Cotton in a rear bedroom suffering from an apparent gunshot wound and bleeding from her face, police said.
Cotton, unable to answer police questions because of the severity of her injuries, was taken to UAMS Medical Center for treatment.
A woman and a teenage girl who were in the house told officers they heard a gunshot and saw "several" black males whom they couldn't identify run from the building; the witnesses were taken in for further questioning, police said.
Michael White, 21, who was also present, told officers that he'd been in the bedroom at the time of the shooting with Cotton and "Lil E," who was described as a black male, about 5 foot 8, 170 pounds, wearing a red shirt, Levi's jeans and black shoes. White said he and Cotton were looking in her purse when he heard a loud pop, and when he looked up, he saw Cotton bleeding from her face, according to the report.
White said "Lil E" and the other black males who were outside the room fled the house, the report states.
Cotton's condition was unknown Tuesday morning.
