  • CRIME SCENE: Police at shooting on Sixth.

Channel 4 reports a fatal shooting near 6th and Louisiana about 1:15 a.m. today. If you're counting, it's homicide #19 for the year in Little Rock.

The shooting broke out during large gatherings at clubs in the block bounded by 6th, Center, Louisiana and Captiol.

Officer Michelle Howard, who explained that while the initial radio call mentioned an address on 6th, where a big event with DJs was underway at Lulav, the report of trouble actually came from the Mediums Art Lounge at 521 Center Street, in the same city block, but around the corner from Lulav. Both occupy space in a larger building that once housed the Draughon School of Business.) That call was to a disturbance, not a shooting. After officers arrived, they heard gunshots and found the body of a man fatally shot on a parking lot north of the building. The victim was identified as Terry Bullard, 18, of Little Rock.

Channel 4 says he just graduated this week from Central High School and was headed to play football at Henderson State. His family said he was at the wrong place at the wrong time Friday night.

Forbidden Hillcrest, a steady monitor of police traffic, said things started with a fight and police were on hand when someone was shot, according to radio transmissions.

Crowds were attracted to both clubs — because of the "all white affair" at Lulav, in which patrons are encouraged to wear white attire, and the "Pink Friday" at Mediums.

  • 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.
