North Little Rock officers responding to a robbery call found a victim who had been fatally shot in a gas station late Friday, a police spokesman said.

Spokeswoman Sgt. Amy Cooper said the 911 caller indicated a robbery and that shots had been fired shortly before 11:40 p.m. at the Valero gas station at 601 Broadway, which is just northwest of Dickey-Stephens Park.

When officers arrived on scene, they found a victim — whose age and gender was not immediately available — dead inside the gas station, Cooper said.

The victim was not an employee of the gas station, Cooper said.

The gas station does have interior video surveillance, she said, and suspect information will likely be available soon.

The shooting is North Little Rock’s first homicide of 2019, and came just hours after a Pulaski County man was gunned down fewer than 20 miles away near Maumelle.

    Remind me to stay at home as much as possible, with the door locked and a loaded gun handy at all times.

    Ban no-service fueling to put some extra people on duty at these places and create some badly needed jobs for the youth of our community to reduce crime.

    A credit to the thug community. We need to find these two before the cops do. A jail cell for however long is too good for them. Justice needs to be done.
