LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Little Rock Police said narcotics were found after a shooting victim drove to officers for help Thursday.
According to Sgt. Cassandra Davis, a shooting victim drove himself to the intersection of Roosevelt Road and Schiller Street to get help after he had been shot on 27th Street and Battery Street. Davis said a second person with the shooting victim told them he had been shot by someone who was selling the two a bottle of prescription pills. The victim's injuries, dealt to his upper torso, are life-threatening.
Officers said the second person told police that he had thrown the pills they were buying over a fence to help his friend; the pills were later found in a bush. In addition, police said they found a small baggie full of a white, powdery substance in the vehicle's middle console.
The suspect was only identified as "Edwin," and a description was not given. Police said when found, he could face first-degree battery and terroristic acts.
The victim's name is being withheld until next of kin has been notified.
