Teen shot in jaw in­side friend’s car

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - ARKANSAS -

A 19-year-old woman was shot in the jaw af­ter two rob­bers ap­proached her friend’s car in North Lit­tle Rock on Satur­day night, po­lice said.

An of­fi­cer was sent shortly af­ter 11 p.m. Satur­day to Bap­tist Health Med­i­cal Cen­ter-Springhill in re­sponse to a re­port of an ag­gra­vated rob­bery, ac­cord­ing to a North Lit­tle Rock Po­lice Depart­ment re­port.

Ebony Hooker, 19, of Jack­sonville was in “crit­i­cal con­di­tion” and dif­fi­cult to un­der­stand be­cause of her in­jury, the re­port says.

Hooker told po­lice that she was get­ting a ride with a friend — whom she called “Dez” — to the Tar­get store at 4000 McCain Blvd.

She said the friend pulled over near a gas sta­tion close to Ar­ring­ton Apart­ments at 6301 Camp Robin­son Road. Then two strangers dressed all in black ap­proached the pas­sen­ger-side

door and told Hooker to give them “ev­ery­thing” she had, ac­cord­ing to the re­port.

Hooker said “Dez” tried to drive away, and one of the as­sailants shot her in the face with a ri­fle.
