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.
