    Question Nutty Shooting as State Fair Closes

    From this morning's Arkansas Democrat Gazette is this story. It's nuts around here, if you ask me

    Shots injure 3 leaving state fair

    By Jacob Quinn Sanders

    LITTLE ROCK — Three people suffered gunshot wounds in Little Rock late Sunday just after the closing of the Arkansas State Fair, police said.

    Just before 11 p.m., as 40 or 50 people walked to their cars in a residential neighborhood just north of the fair complex on Roosevelt Road, “someone started shooting,” according to a Little Rock police report.

    Thomas Overton-Blue, 18, of Little Rock, started running for his car near West 24th and South Park streets when he heard the gunshots, then “felt a sting in his leg,” according to the police report. A bullet passed through his upper right leg, exiting his thigh and grazing his penis, according to the report. Police said Overton-Blue did not know who shot him.

    Another victim, Kentray Dukes, 21, of Little Rock also could not tell police who started shooting. A bullet pierced his testicles, police said.

    Another bullet hit Doreal Mills, 18, of Benton in both wrists.

    None of the injuries were life-threatening.

    Monday afternoon, Little Rock police detectives went back into the area to do what they called a “neighborhood,” a door-to-door canvass to try to turn up more information and witnesses.

    As they got near West 23rd and South Schiller streets, they heard loud voices and saw two men in the street. Then they heard about six gunshots.

    Detectives caught one of the men as the other ran behind a house at 2322 S. Schiller St.

    “Whether the individual we have in custody is a suspect or a victim is something we’re trying to sort out,” said Sgt. Cassandra Davis, a Little Rock police spokesman.

    The Little Rock police SWAT team arrived after an officer thought he heard noises inside the house.

    SWAT officers surrounded the house after police asked residents to stay inside their homes and cut off street traffic. After about 45 minutes, the SWAT officers entered the house and found it empty.

    Davis said investigators had not determined late Monday afternoon whether the man in custody or the argument in the street had anything to do with the Sunday-night shooting.

    “When we know something, we’ll tell you,” she said.

    The trajectory as toward the first two injuries is very weird considering they were not standing next to the shooter.
    Was the shooter prone on the ground firing at an upward angle?

    A whole lot of strange here.

    Very strange set of circumstances. Then again, Little Rock does have some bad crime problems at times. Not sure where they rank on the scale now, but they used to be way up towards the top.

    It definately does seem like the shooter was aiming at certain parts of the victims anatomy. Maybe the victims had done something to a sister/mother or girlfriend of the shooter.

    Will be interesting to see if more information on it follows in days to come.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Yeah we were trying to figure this one out at lunch yesterday and it seems like Victim "C" was covering his jewels. It also seems like a woman was involved, if not the shooter. Would a jealous boyfriend/husband left three guys to identify him? It's just weird all around.

    This is wild. Especially the most injury prone part of the body in these shootings. Definitely an odd one.
