Bank robbery reported on Chenal Parkway UPDATE

  • AT THE SCENE: Officers gather outside Arvest bank.
Twitter from KATV reports a bank robbery at an Arvest branch on Chenal with an additional report that someone may have been shot in the leg.

UPDATE: About that shooting....

RT @JustinLewisKATV NEW INFO: Bystander at gas station saw robber leave bank and fired shots w/ personal gun. Bystander in blue scrubs.

More here from Fox 16. It seems that a bystander decided to take the law into his own hands and fire at a person he believed to be a fleeing robber. It's not yet clear whose bullet struck whom.

Whatever the facts, I'd guess that firing at a fleeing possible criminal suspect in a grocery store parking lot near a busy thoroughfare is not something police will want to encourage.

UPDATE II: Here's KARK's account. Their early word is that two robbers robbed and shot someone either entering or leaving the bank and then a bystander fired at them as they fled. But it cautions that early reports could change.

UPDATE III: KTHV says the self-deputized shooter was a doctor.

  • Psych of the South: The Mercenaries' 'Things Found Here'

    Recently, a trove of band business cards from the golden era of Arkansas garage bands was discovered and put on eBay. I was able to purchase some of them, including one by a little known 1960s garage band from Little Rock named The Mercenaries. Their record, on the cult favorite MY records label based in Little Rock, was released in early 1967. Their songs, including the atmospheric and heavy “Things Found Here” along with the psychedelic tinged “Take It All” are obscure even by garage rock standards. They were not featured on the 1999 Butler Center MY records compilation and their story has not been told before
