No arrests in Salvation Army slaying

Posted By on Fri, Dec 25, 2009 at 6:22 AM

Bill Lawson of Stephens Media provides coverage of yesterday's slaying of Salvation Army Maj. Philip Wise, 40, during an attempted robbery.

His story, and TV coverage, indicate there have been no arrests of the two young men who shot Wise in front of his three children and wife as he dropped off kettle donations at a Salvation Army facility in North Little Rock about 4:15 p.m. Christmas Eve.

The Salvation Army has scheduled a news conference to discuss the crime at 11 a.m. today, about the time it will doing its usual service of Christmas dinner at shelters for homeless.

From the Future of Newspapers Department: No coverage of this crime appeared in this morning's print Democrat-Gazette, though there was a long list there of roads closed yesterday that are now likely open because the rain has -- finally -- moved on. I presume the death will be on page one tomorrow. As Carrick noted, the story is on-line for subscribers. Last night, CNN had film coverage through its Channel 4 affiliate.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    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.
