The Little Rock Police Department is investigating a weekend shooting incident on the city's west side after a store owner exchanges gunfire with suspects who tried to rob his business.

It happened Saturday afternoon around 4:45 along North Bowman Road. A police officer on patrol said he heard two to three loud bangs before he was flagged down by several people reporting the shooting.

Police say the 27-year-old owner of Urban Swagg said three suspects beat him in the head and face before tying him up and then tying up his 25-year-old girlfriend too.

It happened after the men walked into the business and two of them looked around while the third man put a gun in the owner's face and told him to get behind the counter. The suspect then asked for the key to the cash register. When the store owner pushed the weapon out of his face, the three suspects attacked him, he told police.

Got good description of clothing and cars though. The $200 won’t even cover bail, it will be like chump change.

I guess he didn’t have a security camera in store.
