A 41-year-old man was shot while in his car outside a Little Rock home early Monday, police said.
Officers responded around 1:55 a.m. to a call of shots fired in the area of 21st and Pine streets, according to a report from the city's Police Department.
The victim, Louis Miller of Little Rock, was later found receiving treatment at UAMS Medical Center in Little Rock, authorities said.
Miller’s mother said her son was shot while with a cousin inside a Mercedes-Benz S550 outside a home in the 2100 block of South Pine Street.
When the cousin left and Miller started the car, someone in a maroon Chevrolet Tahoe fired shots into the Mercedes-Benz, prompting the 41-year-old to lean over the center console to “dodge the fired rounds,” police said.
The shooter then traveled east on Charles Bussey Avenue, the report noted.
Miller, whose injuries were not considered life-threatening, drove to his mother’s house and she took him to UAMS for treatment.
A relative of Miller's was transported to the 12th Street substation for questioning. His name did not appear in Pulaski County jail records as of Monday afternoon.
