Two suspects were arrested Monday in the killing of a 38-year-old man who died more than two weeks after he and four others were wounded in a shooting outside a Little Rock home.

Darius Gulley, 24, and Linquinton Dean, 25, both of Little Rock, were arrested at Dean's address in the 6000 block of Verbena Drive around 9:40 p.m., according to a police report.

Police say Dean and Gulley both fired numerous times at people who were in the yard of a home at 2111 Bragg St., just west of Interstate 30 near downtown, around 10:45 p.m Nov. 2, according to police reports. An officer at the scene said the shooters fired from a "concealed position," the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette previously reported.

[HOMICIDE MAP: Details on all killings so far this year in Little Rock]

Three women and two men were injured in the shooting, and each victim's injuries at that time were thought to be non-life threatening, police said.

One of the men who had been shot, 38-year-old Fred Duhart of Little Rock, died around 6 a.m. Nov. 20 at UAMS Medical Center. Duhart's death was the 35th homicide of the year in Little Rock. That number has since risen to 37.

Gulley faces charges of capital murder, four counts of first-degree battery, theft of property and failure to appear. Dean faces a capital murder charge and four counts of first-degree battery as well as a violation of an order of protection charge.

Both men are being held without bail. A court date is scheduled for Dec. 5.

    One of these men has arrest records dating back to 2011 and his rap sheet is long as your arm. Goes to show that the revolving door of the justice/penal system in Arkansas does not serve its mission to protect the public. Crime is on the increase in LR and criminals know that if caught, little will be done to them and at the worst is a short vacation with 3 hots and a cot.

    Do we know how much of this stuff is random thuggishness vs possible gang activity? There is no comment on this in the news stories or from our city leaders or police chief. Would sure like to know their thoughts...and what they are planning to do about it.

    I've heard that we are down 60+ officers and having trouble with recruitment, meaning that our officers are in purely reactive mode and can't be more involved in regular patrolling and being visible and active in our communities. If this is correct, that means we have an economic problem. It needs to be solved. I would much rather spend an extra couple of million a year on salaries that police our city, than to spend it on more new bridges or civic center upgrades. I'm not being down on the new Robinson Auditorium or the new Broadway bridge, but police should be a priority for our money if we have an economic problem here...

    By now, most thugs know there is going to be very little done to them for committing crimes and LRPD is hunkered down in the self protect mode.

    But thank goodness that Trump will come into office on January 21, 2017, because -- as he boasted himself many times -- he, alone, can solve all these problems and make our streets safe again. So on January 22, we can all walk the streets of our cities again, without fear of any more crime. Buhleeeeeve Trump when he promises something.

    Ready for some law and order! Maybe he can also do something with all the white rapists, old white ladies burying bodies and white dudes shooting police officers. Oh, and the christian extremists with all the child porn. If you'll lose your citizenship for burning a flag...

    Ooops, I gave bad advice to all the would-be criminals out there... Inauguration Day is January 20th, not the 21st. So you criminals have one less day to parade around doing your thing without fear, before the day of reckoning. Trump will make all the streets of America safe again on January 21st!! I can't wait to walk my streets after dark that day, without having to carry my concealed hardware. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Trump is with me; he will keep me safe.

    Heh heh heh at 3WS, comparing christians' child porn to flag burning!! I tend to agree: child porn is not constitutionally protected, but flag burning is. Trump could earn some sho-nuff bonafide street cred if he would de-citizenize child pornographers. But NOOOOO, he saves his harshest punishments for those who honor and abide by the US Constitution.
