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.

    Violent crime in the US will be largely unabated until we find the resolve to address the underlying causes such as the baby momma/daddy culture and the devaluation of life by Planned Parenthood. Guns are blamed as a convenient excuse not to deal with the real problems and to score political points with gunophobes.

    I’ll say it again, ...the degeneration of the Negro culture is the decades-old failure of the “promise of the Great Society”.

    Hello Condoleezza:
    I've said before in previous posts, that I use "Negro" capitalized with "N" out of respect for the race. When I grew up in the 50-60's, it was disrespectable to use "black", "High yellow", "boy", "n-gger", et al. To wit, Martin King referred to "Negros" in his speeches; There is the legacy "Negro Baseball Leagues", "United Negro Colleges", etc.
    I maintain a data base of crimes perpetrated in the Little Rock metro, and since January 2017, I have over 34 pages of 8-pt-type sgl-spaced records of crimes that I code by one word when appropriate as "Negro", "Caucasian", whatever.
    I do this for sorting-by-race purposes. I also save three or four lines of text briefly describing the event. Often, the description published in the ARDG Online paper will contain, "black male", "black gun", "black hoodie", "black car", "black clothes", "black whatever". I edit an inclusion of "Negro", sort and count by (for example), "Negro" race, and count only one instance of "Negro" race per incident. Often it would not be unusual to count six or more occurrences of "black" adjectives per incidence, and to count as such would greatly inflate the race perpetrator incident count.
    To date, over 95% of the ARDG OnLine articles (as reported and counted) are perpetrated by Negro males. And I do log Caucasians, Hispanics, Asians, etc. (when reported).
    Sorry if you are offended by the reference to your race as "Negro", but I just don't use the "politically correct" euphemisms such as "African American", "black", "or person of color", et al.

    Well Social Security (socialism,yet to see right winger return check to treasury ), Medicare ,socialism (yet to right winger burn Medicare card),public schools ,socialism ( yet to see right winger reimburse taxpayers for 130,000 [current dollars] or so for their education by public schools ) or even refuse to poop in public owned sewer systems (socialism ),but there are those who long for complete totalitarian control by GOP and their orange Fuehrer.

    Check out Court Connect on Mr Jackson, career criminal as in how many felonies can a man get? When the police talk about Corey Jackson nobody asks, “Corey who?” The police officers know this cat. People who lives bad lives normally do not have happy endings. Good riddance!

    Carpenterretired, public works, schools, etc that you mentioned do not qualify the US as socialist. Your fellow socialist Alexandria Cortez and the other 30 plus members of the Democratic Socialists of America who hold public office in the US want to extinguish capitalism and convert to state owned business. Control the the goods and the means and you can control the people. Hence, totalitarianism. That’s a reality that has taken root with the youth in the Democrat party. I voted for Trump just like most people I know. Not one of us wants Trump to be a totalitarian ruler.
