SWAT standoff in west Little Rock, now a manhunt

Posted By on Thu, Mar 22, 2012 at 12:46 PM

Police are looking for Dexter "D-Money" Thrower, 36, a suspect in an early morning drug-bust in west Little Rock. Around 7:40 a.m. officers reported to the 3900 block of St. James Court, in response to shots fired in the area. Police found another man, Michael Monroe, in nearby woods, and brought him in for questioning.

According to witnesses, two women and two men were in the house, smoking some sort of drug and yelling about money. Shots were fired and two women ran out of the house. These women have also been taken in for questioning. A nearly three-hour SWAT standoff resulted in police searching the house with a pole camera and determining that no one was inside. Now police are searching for Thrower, who has a criminal history and was released from prison four months ago.

He was last seen in blue jeans with no shirt in the neighborhood south of West 36th St. and east of Shackleford Road. Police consider him armed and dangerous.
