The home of a teen reportedly present at a November triple homicide was struck by a bullet Sunday evening while his family watched television inside, authorities said.
Officers responded to a report of several gunshots in the 8100 block of Doyle Springs Road shortly before 7:30 p.m., according to a Little Rock Police Department report. The caller, a 34-year-old man, told police one bullet tore through a wall in his house.
Three teens and an infant were inside the house during the gunfire, the report states. The man told authorities his 17-year-old son, who was in the home, was also present when three people were fatally shot in Little Rock on Nov. 16.
Officer Eric Barnes, a Little Rock Police Department spokesman, said authorities are investigating the shootings but are not ready to confirm a connection to November's killings.
"With the narrative about someone being present during the homicides, that's somewhat concerning," Barnes said, before adding, "There's no way right now we can call it the motive behind it."
Crime scene investigators found eight empty shell casings, as well as a bullet hole in the garage door, but no injuries were reported, authorities said.
No suspects were named, and no arrests had been made at the time of the report.
LR man faces theft of trailer, police say
A Little Rock man was arrested in the theft of a trailer after an officer pulled him over because the trailer did not have lights, according to a police report.
The officer who pulled over Clarence Arnold, 43, noticed that the left rear tire of the trailer had a locking device. After an investigation, police determined it was a stolen trailer that belonged to Kesser International.
Arnold initially stated his name was Willie Lowe, but officers determined his correct name when they booked him. Police charged him with theft of property and obstruction of government operations, according to the report.
