Open line and homicide

Posted By on Sun, Oct 7, 2012 at 3:14 PM

I have some cooking to do tonight (the advent of cool weather is time for the first four-cheese pizza of the season from the Greens cookbook) so I'm bugging out.

I'll leave it for now with a homicide report from the Pulaski County sheriff.

Antonio Davis, 22, was killed at a home on Charlene Lane about 9:20 p.m. Saturday. Edward Charles Lee, 34, a neighbor, was charged with first-degree murder. The street is near the south end of Geyer Springs Road, not far from the Landmark community south of Little Rock. It was the county's fifth homicide of the year.

Here's the report. According to it, Lee went to a neighbor's house to break up a fight and fired on Davis when he wouldn't stop advancing toward him. Lee shot Davis four times in the chest because, he told deputies, he feared for his safety. The men had a history, apparently. The report doesn't say Davis was armed, but Lee told deputies Davis had broken Lee's ankle in a previous altercation.
