Two people who were shot at reported the attack days later because they believed the gunman was "trying to kill them," according to a report from the Little Rock Police Department.

About 1:15 p.m. Friday, officers went to a home in the 2300 block of South Tyler Street to gather information on an earlier shots fired call.

The victims, a 30-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman, told police they were driving north on Fair Park Boulevard about 1:15 p.m. Friday when someone began shooting at the car.

The man said he drove away as the gunman and another individual in a silver or gold Toyota Camry fled west on 29th Street toward the University of Arkansas at Little Rock parking lot.

According to the report, one bullet went through the front windshield and another shattered the driver's-side window. A third went through the passenger's seat and became lodged in the rear passenger door, police noted. One reportedly grazed the woman's left shoulder.

The victims did not report the crime until Sunday and did not seek medical attention but stated that they were afraid and did not want to stay at their home. They believed the individuals were "trying to kill them," they said.

Police did not name the suspects but wrote that they were possibly members of the 31st Street Piru, an ally of the Bloods gang. No arrests had been made at the time of the report.

    Nobody is going to do anything to effectively put a stop to this kind of crap. We are too concerned with violating someone's rights to do what needs to be done - declare war on these gangs and eliminate them. They are at war with society but society is not fighting back.
