14-year-old killed in home in Central Little Rock

Posted By on Thu, May 24, 2012 at 10:49 AM

Little Rock police announced at a news conference this morning that a 14-year-old boy was found shot to death about 2 a.m. this morning at a house at 4600 Grand Street.

Channel 4 quotes police as saying at least five other people were in the house at the time and that it was known as a place where youths hung out. Those in the house apparently didn't know the youth, who had been reported earlier this spring as a runaway. His residence was listed by Lt. Terry Hastings as being 1412 Valentine Street. He identified him as Tyjuan Woodard.

UPDATE: Police say they now believe the death was an accident Hastings said interviews by police indicated that Woodard and a 13-year-old had been playing with a gun Wednesday when it discharged, hitting Woodard in the chest. He said the shooting occurred between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Wednesday, though it wasn't reported until early this morning. The questioning continues. Hastings said the state Department of Human Services had been called to investigate conditions in the house for children.

    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.
