Two shot at Verizon Arena this morning

Posted By on Tue, May 21, 2013 at 2:20 PM

Officers with North Little Rock police responded to a call about a shooting at Verizon Arena this morning around 11 a.m. and found two people shot.

A female student from Little Rock's Parkview High School was one of two people wounded in what a Little Rock School District official told KTHV is a "domestic situation." The suspect in the case, a male who is not a student at Parkview, was also shot, and is in serious condition. The relationship between the suspect and the female victim — and how both wound up wounded — hasn't been released.

Parkview had just completed practice for their graduation ceremony at the time of the shooting. Parkview's graduation is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. tonight at Verizon, and will apparently go on as planned. We're trying to reach a NLR police spokesman for more information, and will post if anything else becomes available.

UPDATE: This from the Little Rock School District:

Tuesday morning following practice for Parkview graduation exercises, a female senior was wounded on the parking lot outside Verizon Arena as the result of what police believe was a domestic dispute with a person not affiliated with LRSD. Thankfully, the student’s injuries are not life-threatening. No other students were injured.

We are sending our well wishes to the injured student and her family and hopeful that the she will make a full recovery. Graduation exercises will continue as planned and LRSD is working closely with North Little Rock Police to provide extra security at all ceremonies.

In case of severe weather, we will follow Verizon Arena emergency protocols which require everyone to be inside the arena bowl, not the concession areas; and any other measures recommended by Verizon officials, should they become necessary.

Channel 4 has identified the young woman as Jasmine Fisher.
