Details still lacking on officer-involved death in Little Rock

Posted By on Mon, Oct 9, 2017 at 7:24 AM

It's been roughly 51 hours since a man was killed about 4 a.m. Saturday after some sort of confrontation with Little Rock police at the after-hours Local Union club at 1501 N. University.

The victim has not been identified. Two officers were injured. They have not been identified nor has more information been made available about the extent of their injuries. No further details have been provided about what occurred. Police fired shots at the man. He crashed his car into a brick wall. Early Saturday morning, police said it wasn't clear if he'd been shot or died from the crash.

It's still not clear.

UPDATE: Police say more details may be released later today. I was told both officers are recuperating at home.
