Police say a confrontation between a convenience store clerk and a man on the parking lot of the West Little Rock store where he worked turned deadly early this morning, with the clerk later arrested for first degree murder. 

An LRPD press release said that officers were called to the EZ Mart located at 11911 Mara Lynn Drive, at the intersection of Mara Lynn and Bowman, around 4 a.m. today in response to a call about a man being shot. When they arrived, police found Jarvis Garner, 20, of Little Rock, on the ground near the gas pumps. He was later transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police questioned Nicholas Beasley, the clerk who had been working at the gas station. Police say Beasley told them he had gone outside to confront Garner for hanging around the parking lot, and Garner was allegedly shot during that confrontation. 

Beasley has been arrested, and is currently being held in the Pulaski County Regional Detention Center. No bond has been set.

    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.
