Little Rock records 10th homicide of the year

Posted By on Wed, May 8, 2013 at 8:48 AM

Little Rock recorded its 10th homicide of 2013 overnight. Kelshawn Mouton, 21, was found shot to death on Black Jack Court in Southwest Little Rock off Stagecoach Road about 11 p.m. last night. Witnesses identified a suspect, who is being sought.

One witness said she was riding in a car with Mouton and others when it began being followed by the suspect, her former boyfriend, who she said had been harassing her over a debt of $100. They turned off Stagecoach to avoid him, but the suspect blocked their car at the end of the cul de sac. Mouton got out of the car to defend the woman, who said she'd been grabbed by the suspect. She said Mouton fired a shot in the air and the suspect then shot Mouton. Mouton reportedly said before dying that he'd only fired to stop the attack on the woman, not to hit the suspect. A car and a house on the street were hit by bullets in the exchange.
