Shooting on Baseline Rd.

SKS RIFLE
  • SKS RIFLE

A shooting just after 6 a.m. this morning on Baseline Road, where a guy headed to work had his window busted out by a robber carrying an SKS assault rifle, and was later shot in the shoulder. Luis Morales told police the robber — who he said he recognized as a man he's seen at a local apartment complex — smashed his window, demanded his wallet, then began firing at Morales when he attempted to flee into the back seat of his car.

Morales was able to escape with his life, but detectives found five SKS shell casings at the scene, which makes Morales one lucky fella. He was transported to UAMS, where he was treated for what were described as non-life-threatening injuries. The shooter is still at large.
