A 19-year-old man remained in critical condition Monday night after being shot on a street corner in Little Rock earlier in the day, authorities said.

Officers were dispatched at 11:42 a.m. to the intersection of John Barrow Road and West 32nd Street for a report of a shooting that had just occurred, said Lt. Steve McClanahan, a Police Department spokesman.

When police arrived, they found Deontre Rhodes of Little Rock on the sidewalk suffering from what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds, McClanahan said.

Emergency medical personnel took Rhodes to Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock, according to a police report.

Rhodes remained in critical condition Monday night, police said.

Rodney Dickerson said he was in the area with his 1-year-old son Monday when he heard a gunshot.

Dickerson saw the shooting victim on the ground and went over to check his vitals, he said.

"I was in the military," Dickerson said. "It was part of my training."

The victim, lying facedown on the concrete, was unresponsive and had lost a large amount of blood, he said.

    These thugs are out of control. Little Rock needs Marshall Law until our crime problem gets under control. WHERE ARE OUR CITY LEADERS? I'M GUESSING THEY DON'T WANT TO ASK THE NATIONAL GUARD FOR HELP. We need to vote out every last one of them!

    Queen, Our city leaders are busy giving raises to Bruce Moore and spending the sales tax downtown to line the pockets of the real estate industry. Meanwhile we're short 70 police officers. I guess that raise isn't merit-based.
