  • STOLEN IN SHOOTING: Yamaha cycle.

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.
