    Most of the press conference focused on the drive-by shooting of Olson, which occurred on Wednesday evening. Police said they were able to obtain surveillance video of the truck. It is described as a 2007-2010 Ford F-150 extended cab, maroon pickup truck. It has tinted windows, chrome wheels, and possibly a chrome bumper; it may have an orange welding or tool box in the back. Police need to speak with the owner of the truck.

    North Little Rock have received three surveillance videos from the scene and also obtained video from other businesses further down McCain Blvd. and Camp Robinson Road. Based on the surveillance video, it appears that the driver continued westbound on McCain Blvd to 47th Street, then to Camp Robinson and turned left and continued to 33rd Street, driving under I-40.

    Police are asking anyone in the Camp Robinson area with information to please call in tips regarding this case. The number to call is 501-680-8439, which will reach the Homicide Division.
    Police mentioned that there is a 'sizeable award' being offered in this case, but did not provide details on it.

    Police Chief Mike Davis said it does not appear that Olson was specifically targeted in this shooting, saying, "I just don't think there is any other way than that the victim in this case was just in the wrong place at the wrong time."

    North Little Rock police thanked the public multiple times for their help in this case and encouraged people to call in any information they may have on what happened.
