A New York City man was killed and two others injured in a shooting early Wednesday morning in central Little Rock, a police spokesman said.
Two 911 calls drove police to respond to the 2400 block of South Cross Street, where officers found three men suffering from gunshot wounds, police spokesman Officer Eric Barnes said. One 911 caller reported hearing multiple shots and a second told dispatchers that their brother had been shot.
At the scene, officers found a white Chevrolet SUV with three New York City residents inside, according to a police report. Barnes said officers attempted to stabilize Jose Castro, 32, but the man died at the scene. The vehicle had crashed into several trash cans and brush at the side of the street, where it came to rest.
Police say the injuries of the two other men are believed to be non-life threatening.
Castro's death is the 15th homicide in the city this year, according to police.
