Teen shot in jaw inside friend’s car
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.
