Police rope off a crime scene after shots rang out in the parking lot of a Little Rock grocery store Thursday.

Police roped off a section of a grocery store parking lot on South Main Street in Little Rock after shots rang out there about noon Thursday.

It happened in the parking lot of the Edwards Food Giant in the shopping center on the southeast corner of 17th and Main streets.

Lt. Sidney Allen, a Little Rock police spokesman, said in an email that a "verbal altercation ... escalated and shots were fired" but no one was hit. A suspect vehicle was stopped about two blocks away.

"The weapon was recovered and all involved parties were transported to the detective offices," Allen wrote, adding he did not yet have the names of any of those involved but that "it is likely they will face aggravated assault charges."

At least four shell casings were visible in the crime scene, circled on the ground by white paint.

A witness who said he was in his car at the time of the shooting said two women were fighting when a man who he believed to be related to one of them opened fire. He said his car was one in the crime scene that was hit in the the rear tires by the shots, flattening both of them.

This is a nice little store with security on site. Shame these armed clowns are allowed out in public. Thanks, Wayne LaPierre!

Two flatten tires? I think the tires were the intended target.

RBH, you are dummern' than a Duroc hog. This ghetto trash don't have CCP's or belong to the NRA. Their guns are probably stolen or bought on the street from other entrepreneurs whose employment history includes pimpin' for ho's, pharmaceuticals, inventorying people's homes for free, and reducing the population of innocent working people. I wish you would get your head hammered in some parking lot. You would be praying for a gun. It happened to a gun control idiot I know. He now has a CCP and a different view of things.
