2113 S. Pine St., Little Rock

Little Rock police are investigating a Saturday homicide.

Officers were called shortly after noon to 2113 S. Pine St. after receiving a call about a shooting, Little Rock Police Department spokesman Sgt. Cassandra Davis said in a statement.

The victim, Roderick Knowlton, 21, from Little Rock, died from his wounds, and detectives are working to identify the gunman, for whom they currently know only a "street name," Davis said.

No additional information is being released at this time, Davis said, though police are calling the death a homicide.

It will be news to you when one of your loved ones is caught in the cross-fire. We have a failed public school system that warehouses kids from poor or dysfunctional families instead of doing what high schools used to do for non-college bound students...teaching a trade. When inner city kids know there are no jobs for them and they've been allowed to be passed along without mastering the language or basic math skills let's not be shocked when they turn to the very lucrative career of selling illegal drugs and guns. Get police out of their cars and into the community and see how quickly things turn around. This is not the South side of Chicago or Detroit, with a little will and commitment to reduce the crime rate things will change, but not when one of the biggest employers is the Detention center and ADC.
