Police investigate a Friday afternoon shooting at the SuperStop at Roosevelt Road and Johnson Street in Little Rock.

3100 W. Roosevelt Road, Little Rock

Little Rock police are looking for a man who shot a 23-year-old woman Friday at the SuperStop gas station on Roosevelt Road, spokesman Sgt. Cassandra Davis said.

Davis said police responded to a shots-fired report about 12:36 p.m. at the SuperStop, 3100 W. Roosevelt Road. A caller said five shots had been fired.

When police arrived at the scene, they found a woman, later identified as Vallesha Boles, suffering from at least one, non-life-threatening gunshot wound at the parking lot, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.

At 1:30 p.m., investigators collected blood samples and shell casings at the scene, which was secured with crime-scene tape.

Police said the shooter is described as a black man standing about 5-foot-7, between 20 and 30 years old, and was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with a stripe down the sleeve.

He was last seen driving a gold Oldsmobile.

I sure wish the cops would catch that "black man standing about 5-foot-7, between 20 and 30 years old" and put a stop to his crime spree. That sucker is all over town robbing and stealing and shooting and raping. I don't know how he finds the time or the energy ....................

He should at least take some of his unearned income and buy three or four different colored hoodies to enhance his ensemble.

Black Male with a hoodie, seems to be the most common description in all the crime in the LR ghetto

What happened to the creativity here? I hated the "ban hoodies" comments here last year, but now I miss 'em. Still, if you arrested every young black male in a hoodie in LR, they'd have to turn War Memorial into a jail...
