One killed, another wounded in alleged robbery attempt

Posted By on Thu, Apr 27, 2017 at 11:48 AM

Little Rock police say one 17-year-old was killed and another wounded by a man who said they attempted to rob him Wednesday in an apartment building at 6115 W. Markham Street.

Police were called after 5 p.m. Wednesday about gun shots. They also learned that a juvenile with multiple gunshot wound had been admitted to the nearby St. Vincent Infirmary with non-threatening wounds.

A second juvenile was found in a stairway, fatally wounded.

A police release said a resident of the building, Siddik Haidara, said he'd exchanged gunfire with two males who tried to rob him. He was interviewed by detectives and released without charges pending review by the prosecutor's office.

The police have not identified those shot because they are juveniles.
