• For the first time since she moved into a house on West 19th Street in North Little Rock, Jacqueline Ridgel said she's starting to wonder if her neighborhood is safe. In the past year, the Baring Cross neighborhood has had six homicides, including four in the past three months. The latest, a shooting early Sunday, happened in a house just down the street from Ridgel's. "I've got two teenage boys," Ridgel said. "If they tell me they want to go to the basketball court right now, I probably wouldn't even let them go." Police are concerned about the spate of killings in the neighborhood and are developing a response, said Sgt. Terry Kuykendall, a Police Department spokesman.
