One dead, two injured in two overnight shootings

Posted By on Tue, Apr 3, 2012 at 10:04 AM


Busy night for the Little Rock Police Department, with one man killed and another injured in a shooting at Geyer and Baseline, and another man telling police he was shot while driving on Roosevelt Road.

An incident report on the Southwest Little Rock incident says that around 1:15 a.m. this morning, officers responded to a call about a shooting at a gas station at the corner of Baseline and Geyer Springs Rd. When they arrived, they found a Chevrolet truck engulfed in flames and smoke. Officers pulled the driver, James Hornes, from the cab, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. Another man, Stephen Taylor, was found nearby, shot four times. Taylor told police that two or three Latino men in a maroon pickup had followed them to the location and then started shooting. Taylor is being treated for what police say are non-life-threatening injuries. No word on how the truck wound up ablaze.

In the incident on Roosevelt, Michael McGonigal called police just before 11 p.m. last night, saying that he'd been shot by two men as he was driving past the Auto Zone on East Roosevelt Rd. McGonigal, who was hit twice in the stomach and once in his right thigh, could only describe the men as two black males, one of whom was wearing a white bandana and holding something silver. He was later transported to UAMS for treatment. There are no suspects at this time.

  • 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.
