Crime reports: Downtown robbery and a homicide

Posted By on Mon, Nov 19, 2012 at 10:24 AM

From the Little Rock police this morning:

* ROBBERY: A 24-year-old Louisiana man was robbed of his car, phone and wallet shortly after he parked his 29092 Pontiac Firebird in the parking lot at Markham and Scott Streets across from the Statehouse Convention Center about 7:30 p.m. Friday. A gunman got out of another car after he parked and told him to lie on the ground after handing over his keys, wallet and phone. The man's phone had a tracking application and that led police to finding the car at an apartment complex on 51st Street, but no suspects were found.

* 47th HOMICIDE: Little Rock's 47th homicide of the year occurred shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday when Davante Williams, 19, was fatally shot at 28th and Arch. Theodore Davis, 26, was charged with second-degree murder in the death. The shooting grew out of an argument involving the two men and Williams' girlfriend.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
