Sunday in the park

Posted By on Mon, Apr 17, 2006 at 11:16 AM

Easter Sunday was no day for a walk in the dog area at Murray Park. This from the LRPD:

On 04-16-06, at approximately 1854 hours, officers responded to a Shooting Just Occurred at the dog walking area of Murray Park.  Upon arrival, officers located Stuart Trumble, who had been shot one time in the chest.  Trumble was taken to UAMS where he was taken immediately to surgery.

Witnesses stated that Trumble was in the park with several other people for a birthday party.  While the party was going on two white males pulled up in a truck and approached Trumble.   One of the subjects asked why he had called the police on them and then they began pushing each other.  At some point the other subject got involved and then he shot Trumble one time before fleeing.  The shooter was described as a white male with his face covered by a bandana.  The two suspects fled in the truck, which was followed by one of the witnesses.  At one point the shooter jumped out of the truck and fled on foot.  The witness continued to follow the truck and called 911.  Officer located the truck at a gas station and took the driver into custody.  He was transported to the Detective Division where he was interviewed and released pending an investigation.  Detectives are in the process of obtaining warrants on [the suspect] for Battery 1st. No arrests at this time.

Trumble is currently in stable condition.
