A shooting at a Little Rock nightclub injured two people early Monday, one of whom is still hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, police say.

Officers were called to Club 428 at 4726 Asher Ave. shortly after 12 a.m., a report states. Several patrons were running from the club into their cars, and police were told the shooter had already left, according to the report.

George Hicks Jr., 58, was lying on the ground near the club's front entrance with a gunshot wound to his lower right leg, officers said. After a tourniquet was applied, Hicks was transported to Baptist Health Medical Center. He was still being treated for life-threatening injuries as of 10:45 a.m. Monday, according to the hospital.

A witness told police he saw a man shooting from a silver four-door vehicle that was traveling south on Madison Street, then headed west on Asher Avenue. Two vehicles parked near the club had bullet holes, police noted.

Officers were later notified of another person shot at the club — 35-year-old Carl Rice — who was at UAMS Medical Center being treated for a gunshot wound to his left foot.

Rice became irate and was discharged and banned from the hospital, according to police. He was interviewed by officers and released without charges, then transported to CHI St. Vincent Hospital for further treatment, the report states.

Police named a Little Rock man as a suspect in the report, but the 32-year-old did not appear in the Pulaski County jail online inmate roster as of Monday morning.

I think every time a club has a problem that requires the Police, their business license fee needs to be increased.
