Little Rock police say Frank Steinsiek, 56, of Sherwood has died of gunshot wounds inflicted about 5:25 p.m. Wednesday at 1900 W. 65th Street. No arrests have been made.

Witnesses say Steinsiek was found on a parking lot of the FSA delivery network with gunshot wounds. Police looked unsuccessfully for a white truck seen driving away about that time. It was pulling a trailer with a yellow motorcycle. Police said some surveillance video might have captured events.

Further information from police indicates the motorcycle shown above was stolen in the crime. It's a 2009 Yamaha R1. Apparently the victim was selling the motorcycle on the web and arranged to meet the robbers about it. The cycle was hauled off in a rental trailer.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
