Posted By on Thu, Jul 21, 2011 at 12:58 PM

Little Rock police have identified those involved in an officer's shooting of a man who reportedly pointed a gun at him about 2 a.m. Saturday near Markham and Scott Streets. The incident grew out of stepped-up police efforts to disburse crowds of youths that have been gathering in the area of River Market clubs.

The man shot was Jocobe Malone, 18. Officer Robbie Hinman shot him three times after he reportedly turned toward Hinman with a handgun. Malone had run from the crowd following a shooting moments before.

More details:


At 0206 hours, July 16, 2011, officers where helping to direct the crowd away from the River market area after all businesses had closed, when officers heard several gunshots. Officers observed a black male fleeing from the crowd holding a hand gun. At the corner of Markham and Scott in front of “The Hop Diner” Officer Robbie Hinman ordered the suspect to stop. The suspect then turned toward the officer with the hand gun. The officer fired at the suspect striking him three times. All injuries were to the suspects’ right side of the body. This suspect was transported to an area hospital for treatment of possible life threatening injuries. The suspects’ weapon was recovered by officers. The suspect has been identified as Jocobe Malone B/M 12/29/1992 Address: 7017 Langston L.R. AR. Mr. Malone has been charged with Battery 1st and Aggravated Assault.

Just prior to the officers’ contact with the Malone, shots were heard on a parking lot just east of Scott Street. Radarius Winston B/M 8/15/1991 was shot in the foot by Jocobe Malone. Mr. Winston was transported to St. Vincent for treatment of his non life threatening injuries.

Officer Robbie Hinman joined the Little Rock Police Department on June 10, 1996. He is assigned to the Downtown Patrol Mobile Unit.

    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.
