Three people were killed and a youth was injured in a shooting in Little Rock late Friday night, authorities said.

Officers responded to the 4400 block of W. 14th Street at roughly 10:45 p.m., Lt. Michael Ford, spokesman for the Little Rock Police Department, said. Once they arrived, police found a boy lying outside a home with multiple gunshot wounds, Ford said.

The boy was taken to a nearby hospital, authorities said, but there was no word on his condition Saturday morning.

During their investigation, police also found a car that had crashed into a ditch, Ford said. Inside the vehicle were two women and a male, all of whom had been shot, he said. According to police, the women were transported to a local hospital and later died. The male died at the scene.

The investigation is still ongoing, authorities said. Police are looking for two suspects, but no descriptions have been released. No information on the motive was yet known.

Earlier Friday, police responded to the scene of another homicide just over a mile from the triple homicide.

In that case, officers responded shortly after 3 a.m. to the 3100 block of W. 17th Street to investigate a shooting call, according to a news release from police. Dispatchers had been notified that someone had been shot and was yelling for help.

When authorities arrived, they found 44-year-old Corey Jackson dead in the doorway of a residence, police said. According to police, Jackson appeared to have been shot.

The investigation is still ongoing, police said. No suspects had been named and no arrests have been made at the time of the release.

It wasn't clear if the two shootings were believed to be related.

    Perhaps it's time to move the capital to a safer city like Pine Bluff.

    Wait until all of the eight- and nine-year-old boys have their own pistols, then things will really get wild. We need more guns, right? Maybe when all the five- and six-year-old boys get their handguns, things will settle down, ya think?

    NODMCM.......maybe when courts take felons in possession of guns seriously things will change.

    Seems they won't because it would affect inner city young BLACK thugs and they don't want to be labeled as racists.

    We already have gun laws that are not enforced.

    We still haven't heard from the "smartest man in the room" yet! Maybe he thinks the new mayor can fix this social issue!!

    If you think it's bad now, wait until Frank Scott is elected as Mayor. He has proven he is friends with thugs. ie Tally

    There are certain demographics that are going to kill each other no matter what. It’s their culture. Doesn’t matter if they’re black, white, brown, or whatever. If there aren’t guns they’ll kill with knives, baseball bats, or bows and arrows. But, hope is on the horizon. A California Dem, Swalwell, would suggest an assault weapon buy back if he’s elected president. He went on to say the need for a firearm to protect against the government is “ludicrous”. I’m a little more worried about certain demographics. If the Dems can get their party converted to Socialism, they’ll save us all in their utopian society with complete totalitarian control.
