  • CHIEF BUCKNER: Describing events at club that ended in suspect's death.
A suspect was killed and two police officers suffered injuries after police responded to a disturbance this morning at a late-hours club at 1501 North University Avenue.

KARK reports what's been released by police so far. The suspect was shot at by officers, but it wasn't immediately clear if he was struck by gunfire or if his death came from a vehicle crash. The suspect's vehicle crashed into a brick wall around the parking lot. Officers suffered unspecified injuries, apparently from being struck by the vehicle, but Chief Kenton Buckner said they weren't believed to be life-threatening.

An officer working off-duty called for a backup about 4 a.m. to help with a disturbance at the Local Union, a restaurant and club on the ground floor of the high-rise Prospect Building just south of Cantrell Road. The police, as has become customary, have released few details about specifics of the incident or names of the dead suspect or officers.

  • 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.
