Salvation Army major shot dead in front of 3 children
By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
A Salvation Army major was fatally shot in front of his three children Thursday afternoon as he walked into the the organization's community center in North Little Rock, authorities said.
Around 4 p.m., two black men dressed in black approached Philip Wise, 40, of Maumelle outside the community center at 1505 W. 18th St., Pulaski County Coroner Garland Camper said.
Wise children ages 4, 6, and 8 were walking with him when the men came up to them, police said. His wife, Cindy, also a major in the Salvation Army, was inside the center at the time and called 911.
One of the men pulled a gun, demanded money and then shot Wise, police said.
Police ask that anyone with information contact them at 758-1234.

Evil. Pure evil.
Salvation Army Major = preacher.
An inconceivable crime. So very sad and totally senseless. I pray they find the perps.
I’m just amazed that they mentioned that the shooters were black.
Well aware of that - I pass the local Citadel every few days.
IIRC, Salvation Army officers are their clergy. I hope Arkansas has the death penalty.
The political correctness editor has to work overtime this time of year making sure the Christmas stories are properly sanitised, so this one slipped through the cracks.
Clinton voters, no doubt.
Let’s not jump to conclusions about this being a hate crime. sarc/
World is insane ......dang.
Two El Salvadorean immigrants just got life sentences for brutally killing an 83 year old woman/friend in Maryland.
Life is the best that the marxist state of Maryland, run by a little marxist shit named “O’Malley” can do for brutal killers.
Now that cash-strapped cesspool will have to house, feed and clothe these bastards for the rest of their lives.
Here in Virginia, these guys would be toast by now.
“Yes, Virginia, there is a difference” between us and that craphole down the road.
not a "hate" crime. Just a "kinda don't like" crime.
Thank God the man didn't carry a weapon. You could just imagine the outrage if the victim had shot one of the black perps.
No, I guess it's best to leave the savages and assume that any mission into areas like North Little Rock are suicide missions. That any mission you can come back alive from is a cause to celebrate.
Now if they only had tighter gun control, this would have NEVER happened. /sarc
NO...absolutely NOT! There is no excuse for usng violence against another person unless it's for the purpose of self-defense. PERIOD.
...not going to quibble over this one, so long as they nab the real perps.
I'll even say "Hang them. The slow way." Give them a little extra time to think about the God in front of whose judgment throne they will shortly be standing.
There is always the possibility of repentance.
I think I saw these two guys in my toilet.
Just a couple of aspiring rap artists looking to get paid.
