BRIAN OSMUNDSON: Shot reported apartment intruder.
  • BRIAN OSMUNDSON: Shot reported apartment intruder.
The Little Rock police today provide more information about an off-duty officer's shooting yesterday morning of a man reportedly trying to enter his west Little Rock apartment.

The full release:

On Tuesday, February 27, 2018, at 1024 hours officers responded to a burglary in progress of an occupied apartment at 420 Markham Mesa Place. While officers were enroute to the call, off duty officer Brian Osmundson advised over his police radio that a male was beating on the door to his apartment and trying to gain entry. He then advised that the suspect had broke out a window and was attempting to get inside the apartment and shots had been fired.

When on duty officers arrived on the scene they located Officer Osmundson rendering aid to a black male lying outside of the apartment. The subject was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and kept repeating to officers that his name was “God.”

Officer Osmundson told the responding officers that the subject had attempted to break into his residence and he fired several shots at him. The subject was transported to Baptist Hospital where he was listed in serious but stable condition.

Major Crimes detectives and CSSU responded to the scene. Detectives interviewed witnesses who were inside and outside of the apartment at the time of the incident. The witnesses corroborated the initial information given to officers regarding what occurred.

The subject who was shot has been identified as Cartier Warner, B/M, 06/14/1994, of Little Rock. He is currently in the hospital and under police guard. The charges against Warner are pending the outcome of the investigation and his release from the hospital.

Officer Osmundson was hired a Little Rock Police officer on June 25, 2012. Officer Osmundson has been placed on administrative leave per department policy. The investigation is ongoing.
Osmundson has been involved in at least one other use of force — the fatal shooting of a man who'd been running from officers in the River Market area and who they believed had made a gesture that indicated he was preparing to shoot at them. Michael Hornibrook, 54, was killed in March. In September, prosecutors found that the shooting was justified.

A court records search for the name Cartier Warner turned up a man with a similar name who'd been in court on traffic and failure to appear charges.

    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.
