A woman was shot Thursday afternoon after she agreed to give a man a ride and then felt uneasy about the situation, authorities said.
The shooting happened about 2:04 p.m., after Dacola Coleman, 21, agreed to drive Brandon Watson, 22, to an unknown residence to “meet a friend,” according to a report from the Little Rock Police Department. Because she was confused by the driving directions, Coleman agreed to let Watson take the wheel. Jvonte Carr, 19, was riding along.
When they arrived at a home on Fairfield Drive, an unknown man was standing in the driveway, the report states. Feeling “weird about the situation,” Coleman told Watson to pull “out of the driveway,” which he did, police said. However, a short time later, an argument broke out between Coleman and Watson, at which point Coleman told Watson to "pull over and get out [of] her car." Watson obliged and Coleman resumed driving, the report states.
Once out of the car, however, Watson pulled an “unknown caliber firearm” and began shooting at the car, with one bullet hitting Carr in the “right upper hip area," according to the report. Coleman fled to the Little Rock Police Department Southwest Substation at 6401 Baseline Road to seek help. Carr was taken to St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Authorities are still searching for Watson, who is described as a black male, 6 foot 1 and 230 pounds, wearing a red shirt, bluejeans and black shoes. His last known address is listed in the report as 9808 Wilderness Drive in Little Rock.
