Car injuries in street fight prove fatal

Posted By on Thu, Nov 26, 2015 at 9:54 AM

Little Rock police say Brandon Joyner, 26, died last night from injuries Nov. 21 when he was struck twice by a car during what police described earlier as a street fight that evening in the 1200 block of South Pierce Street.

Joyner was found lying on the ground with critical injuries. Witnesses told police at the time Joyner had been involved at a fight at the address and was struck twice by a car that left the scene. The driver, a 21-year-old man, later  went to the police, but no charges were filed at the time.

Police are terming the death the 27th homicide of the year, but said the investigation into potential charges is continuing. The prosecutor will review the case, a spokesman said.
