Little Rock authorities responding to a car accident Thursday found themselves investigating a homicide instead.
Officers were dispatched about 10:21 p.m. to 5800 Stagecoach Road on a call of a possible vehicle accident, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.
A 2009 Dodge Journey appeared to have run off the road and into some bushes, police said. Inside the sport utility vehicle, Jon Allen, 29, of Little Rock was slumped over in the driver's seat, according to the report.
Russell Bench, a nurse who had been driving by, stopped and administered CPR until paramedics could arrive, the report states. Allen's wife, Glennis, was driving in the area looking for her husband when she saw his vehicle and Bench trying to resuscitate him, police said. It was unclear why Glennis Allen was looking for her husband.
When authorities arrived on the scene, a fire and rescue crew member told police that Allen had been shot.
Allen was taken to Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
No information was available on suspects or motives in the shooting.
