Posted By on Thu, May 9, 2013 at 10:07 AM

New information on a shooting late Tuesday night on Black Jack Court in Southwest Little Rock. The police report, based on witness accounts, identified a suspect who shot Kelshun Mouton. Mouton reportedly fired a shot in the air to break up an altercaton between a woman companion and another man who'd been following their car.

The man who fired the fatal shot turned himself into police today. The LRPD reported:

The Detectives interviewed several witnesses and were able to determine that Donovan Sherard Whittington was the suspect that shot and killed this victim. Homicide Detectives searched for the suspect throughout the night without success however on May 8th, 2013 Mr. Donovan Whittington arrived at Little Rock police headquarter building with his attorney to provide information about the incident. Based on the investigation conducted by detectives, Mr. Whittington was released without charges and the file will be sent to the Prosecutors office for review.

    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.
