The blotter: Road rage and homicide UPDATE

Posted By on Tue, Mar 13, 2012 at 6:24 AM

Twitter is hard to beat as a news headline service. In a few seconds, it synthesizes the news. This morning, it was a blood-and-guts roundup:

* LITTLE ROCK'S NINTH HOMICIDE OF 2012: Fox 16 reports Theodore Mitchell, 32, was fatally stabbed in the throat with a kitchen knife by his girlfriend at their home on W. 19th.

* 7-YEAR-OLD FATALLY SHOT: Zeus Diviaio, 7, was fatally shot in the chest while with his 9-year-old sister in a Green Mountain Drive apartment while his parents were at the apartment complex's office making arrangements for a rental. Circumstances unclear, Channel 11 reports.

UPDATE FROM FOX 16: "Little Rock Police say 7-year-old boy was shot and killed by his 9-year-old sister, who has autism. Prosecutors are reviewing the evidence."

That would, I think, make it the 10th homicide of 2012.

* ROAD RAGE ARREST: Fort Smith police made an arrest, after a car chase and crash in Van Buren, of a man suspected of shooting a Fayetteville man in Springdale after a road rage incident that began in Fayetteville. 40/29 reports.
