Robbery suspect released from hospital, charged in shooting

Posted By on Mon, Jan 18, 2016 at 2:31 PM

The Little Rock Police Department said that Joshua Williams, 17, of Cabot was released from a hospital today and then taken to police headquarters for processing on charges of robbery, attempted capital murder, battery and aggravated assault in a robbery and shootout Jan. 9 at the Red Lobster on West Markham Street.

Robbers exchanged gunshots that night with Shawn Bakr, a Little Rock patrol officer working as a private security guard at the restaurant. Bakr suffered a wound to his shoulder. Williams and another suspect were arrested the night of the robbery, Joshua Williams when officers responded to a call from a nearby home about someone with a gunshot wound.
