A Little Rock man was in critical condition after being shot several times Wednesday at a car wash.

Police say it happened about 3:50 p.m. in the 4200 block of South University Ave.

According to a Little Rock Police Department report, the victim's brother told investigators they were at the business when shots rang out and 32-year-old Michael Deadmon was hit three times in his upper body and once in his arm.

The brother drove Deadmon to St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center in Little Rock, where he was listed in critical condition with life-threatening injuries Wednesday. An update on his condition wasn't immediately available Thursday.

A witness told investigators he saw a black man with dreadlocks approach the victim's Ford Explorer and start yelling before he heard gunshots. The man then got into a black Chevy Malibu and drove off.

Another witness said she was driving out of the car wash when she heard gunshots. Her car was then hit by the fleeing Malibu before it fled the scene.

No arrests have been made.
