Police arrest 12-year-old in armed robbery

Posted By on Tue, Dec 19, 2017 at 11:06 AM

Little Rock police have a 12-year-old in custody in an attempted robbery last night of a Burger King  at 5900 Dreher Lane in Southwest Little Rock in which a gun was fired.

About 7:15 p.m. Monday witnesses said, a male demanded money from an employee, who thought he was joking. Then the youth pulled a handgun. Employees ran to the back and the suspect fired at them, then ran out the door. No one was struck by gunfire.

A description of the robber was broadcast, but the youth returned to the Burger King and turned himself over to officers and said he had done the shooting. He's been charged as a juvenile with aggravated robbery.

  • 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.
