LITTLEROCK –A man was killed and his girlfriend was wounded in an early morning double shooting at a home in Littlerock. The couple’s roommate is wanted in connection with the shooting, authorities said.

The incident occurred around 12:08 a.m. on Thursday (June 27) at a residence in the 35700 block of 82nd Street East, according to a press report by the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.

Detectives say the victims were boyfriend and girlfriend, and they lived with the male suspect at the residence.

The couple got into an hours-long argument with the suspect that escalated into violence, detectives said.

At some point during the argument, the roommate allegedly grabbed a gun and shot the couple, killing the man and wounding the woman, according to detectives.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, and the woman was transported to a local hospital where she was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect was still outstanding, and authorities had not released the names of the couple or the alleged shooter as of Thursday afternoon.

    I see the rocking horse in the picture…sad. Kids are a source of income and food for many people. The more kids you have, the more $$ you get and the more food stamps. Damn…now if they just didn’t have to take care of them…hmmm

      Hello Melissa,

      You are talking about my family as if you know them. I suggest you stop assuming this and that because it makes you look ignorant. Nonetheless, I will let you be. Good luck with that attitude. Best regards woman…

        @ James P. “I will let you be”? Sounds like a veiled threat to me. Is that allowed AVT??

          POd Dank or whatever,

          I didn’t mean to threaten anyone in any shape or form. “Letting someone be” means exactly how it sounds,which is, you can’t change someone so let them be. I apologize if I offended anyone but it’s hard to not defend my family. :(

          OMG, when they offer rewards for turning your neighbor in for having an “ILLEGAL” weapon (once they abolish the right to bear arms) you are going after the reward aren’t you?

        I wasn’t suggesting that ALL people with guns have no respect for human life. I agree we should have the right to defend ourselves against the people who have guns that also have no regard for human life. U must have misread what I wrote. Those people make me sick!! The ones that think the way to win a fight or argument is by simply pulling a trigger.

          I completely agree with you. As a gun owner, if your life is in jeopardy and you feel a gun is the only way to defend yourself then so be it. But what ever happened to an old fashioned ass whooping?

            Guns dont kill poeple poeple with weak minds kill poeple. Cooked? There is no such thing as a cooked mind. The 10% that you do use is the last to go. So you have 90% that is wasted space……..
