Police have identified a suspect, but have not yet arrested him, in the shooting death of Latonio Quince in a rolling drive-by on Mabelvale West near Southwest Hospital early this morning.


On 8-5-09, officers responded to a shooting just occurred call at 11525 Mabelvale West and located a gunshot victim at 11401 I30 (Southwest Hospital).  It was determined the victim was Latonio Quince.  Quince was transported to Baptist Hospital were he was pronounced dead. 
A witness advised they were traveling eastbound on Mabelvale West when a white Crown Victoria sped up to the side of their vehicle.  He then advised that the male subject rolled down the window of the vehicle and fired multiple shots. A suspect was developed and warrants were obtained for Murder 1st and Terroristic Act.  He has not been arrested and we are not releasing the name of the suspect at this time. We hope to have him in custody today.

NOTE: The original police release said incorrectly that the suspect had been arrested.

UPDATE: The police have identifed Joshua Allen, 20, as the suspect and are seeking him. They warn that he should be considered armed and dangerous.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
