Slaying reported on Mara Lynn

Posted By on Fri, Aug 19, 2016 at 9:27 AM

Lawrence Ibekwe, 24, was shot to death shortly after midnight last night in his duplex at 10915 Mara Lynn in western Little Rock.

Police said they found Ibekwe's body in the doorway of his home when responding to a shooting report. According to Matthew Alvis, 25, who was at the scene, he'd been with Ibekwe when two men came to the residence to buy drugs. After they entered, one pulled a gun and ordered Ibekwe to lie on the floor.  The second man ran to the back of the residence. Alvis said Ibekwe refused to lie down and struggled with the gunman, who fired multiple shots before fleeing, along with his companion.

  • 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.
