Death in police sting

Posted By on Tue, Oct 30, 2007 at 4:25 PM

Channel 7 has the early account of the shooting death of a man police say was part of a trio from Saline County that tried to run over officers following a theft of a laptop computer from a car parked near Gristmill and Old Forge in western Little Rock.

Cops had set up a sting in response to hundreds of car burglaries. After the trio stole the  computer from a car being monitored by police early this morning, they attempted to drive off, but were surrounded by officers. Officers say they fired when the suspected thieves' car tried to run over officers. The driver of the car, Lance Stucker, 30, was killed. Rodney Warren, 22, was shot in the stomach, and Josh Black, 31, was arrested unharmed after being found hiding. Officers Erik Temple and Josh Black (yes, the name is the same) have been placed on leave.
