Arrest in Salvation Army major's killing

Cindy Wise talks to reporters after today's press conference.

North Little Rock police have arrested Laquan Javaris Fitzpatrick, 19, in the Christmas Eve shooting death of Salvation Army Maj. Philip Wise.

Police picked Fitzpatrick up at a Helena residence, Gerard Matthews reports from a press conference in North Little Rock. He's being questioned by investigators at the NLRPD headquarters and will be taken to the Pulaski County Jail when their interview is over.

Police Chief Danny Bradley said another suspect is being sought and an award of $10,000 still stands for information leading to that person's arrest.

Maj. Cindy Wise, Philip Wise's widow, attended the press conference and said she was "ecstatic" at the arrest. She said she'd been waiting every day since her husband's death for today's arrest.

Wise, 40, was shot at the Salvation Army office at 1505 W. 18th St. in front of  his wife and three children. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
