Little Rock Fire Department officials found a man who had been fatally shot Tuesday morning while responding to a call in west Little Rock, a police spokesman said.
At 9:41 a.m., Little Rock firefighters responded to 8017 W. 35th St., where a 911 caller said a man was “unresponsive,” Little Rock police spokesman Lt. Michael Ford said. Firefighters found that the man, who had been shot, was deceased.
Emergency services arrived on scene at approximately 9:47 a.m, and Little Rock police shortly after at 9:51, Ford said. The man, who police have not yet publicly identified, was found in the front room of the house on the corner of W. 35th and Gillman streets.
Ford said officers took a witness in for interview, though authorities did not say whether the witness was the same person who called 911.
