Jack­sonville man shot, killed at LR com­plex

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - ARKANSAS INSIDE -

A 30-year-old man was killed late Tues­day at an apart­ment com­plex in Lit­tle Rock, au­thor­i­ties said.

Shortly be­fore 11 p.m., of­fi­cers went to 2123 La­bette Manor Drive, the listed ad­dress for West­bridge Apart­ments, af­ter hear­ing gun­shots in the area, Lit­tle Rock Po­lice De­part­ment spokesman Lt. Steve McClana­han said.

Paul Gon­za­les of Jack­sonville was found shot in the breeze­way of the com­plex by of­fi­cers who were on pa­trol in the area, McClana­han said in a Wed­nes­day morn­ing news con­fer­ence.

Gon­za­les was pro­nounced dead at the scene, and his body was taken to the state med­i­cal ex­am­iner’s of­fice for au­topsy.

De­tec­tives were not sure why Gon­za­les was at the com­plex, McClana­han said.

Wit­nesses re­port­edly heard gun­shots, but no one saw the shoot­ing, ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port re­leased Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon.

No sus­pect or in­for­ma­tion about a pos­si­ble mo­tive is known, McClana­han said.

The killing was the first in Lit­tle Rock, not in­volv­ing an of­fi­cer, since Aug. 20, when a mother found her two chil­dren and their fa­ther dead in a west Lit­tle Rock home.

There have been 47 slay­ings in Arkansas’ cap­i­tal city so far this year.
