Three shot in Little Rock; police investigate

By Gavin Lesnick

Three men were shot Tuesday night in Little Rock in what one witness indicated may be a gang-related crime, according to a police.

Little Rock police say the victims, ages 43, 35, and 22, were all stable at Little Rock hospitals with injuries not believed to be life-threatening, though doctors were concerned about one victim whose spine was hit.

Police said all three victims' injuries were "consistent with birdshot from a shotgun."

Authorities responded about 11 p.m. to the area around the 6900 block of Colonel Glenn Road.

The 43-year-old victim, who was found first in front of a nearby business and had injuries in his leg, arm and hand, reportedly told investigators he was standing outside a gas station across the street "and was shot out of nowhere."

The 35-year-old victim then approached officers and said he too had been shot. That victim said two black men wearing white T-shirts exited the gas station and "started shooting at him as soon as they got outside," the report said.

The third victim was found on a gas station lot. He said he was "suddenly shot" and didn't see who did it.

A witness who did not provide police his identity said the 22-year-old victim and the shooter may have been members of rival gangs.

"Investigators will look into the unidentified witness statement," police Lt. Sidney Allen said in a statement.

No arrests have been made.

Mama always said, "Stupid is as stupid does".

Let me guess what they were up to, hanging out at Asher and University at 11:00 on a weeknight ...... they probably were on their way home from church.

"Around the 6900 block of Colonel Glenn Rd." Wrong. It's Asher Blvd. Always will be to me. City tried to make it a nicer area by changing the name. Working great huh?

I've had comments of mine removed and I was only relaying factual information. Don't know if it's readers complaining or w/in the ADG but there's Definately censorship in this press room.

Censorship will not change the situation or the facts related to incident. Try re-posting your comment from a slightly different perspective & see if it stays. Maybe the stated truth was unbearable for some to read.

Since when did gang bangers start using "bird shot"? Must have been using one of those "assault" bird guns........
