Posted By on Tue, Mar 24, 2009 at 8:22 AM

The police have identified the child shot about 3 a.m. Monday in the parking lot at Col. Glenn and University. Another child was in the car, said to have been cruising through the parking lot.


2009- 30681 – BATTERY 1ST
                  #E110, NORTH LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS
VICTIM – JAMES ARNOLD JR, B/M, 5-13-1980, 1002 Chepstow Ln, Sherwood, AR
Officers responded to a shooting on the parking lot at 6221 Colonel Glenn and observed several people fleeing the area in vehicles.  A short time later officers responded to a shooting report at St. Vincent Hospital and made contact with Cherine Banks who advised that her two year old daughter, Shamari Grayson, was sitting in the backseat of her vehicle when she drove through the parking lot and shots were fired at her vehicle.  Her boyfriend, Jackie, was driving and his friend, James Arnold Jr., was in the backseat with her daughter and eight year old son, Brailon Banks.  All parties were transported to the Downtown Detective Division for questioning.  Arnold was struck by a bullet in his right shoulder during the incident.  Grayson, who was struck in the head by a bullet, is considered to have life threatening injuries and is listed in stable condition at this time.  Banks, Jackie and Arnold all advised that they were riding through the parking lot after picking up Brailon and Grayson when they observed several people on the parking lot.  As they drove through the parking lot they heard multiple shots and bullets began striking their vehicle.  No one was able to provide suspect information.  The investigation is continuing, no arrests.
