Suspect killed in Little Rock officer-involved shooting
KATV ^ | 15 JUL 13 | KATV staff

Posted on 07/15/2013 3:14:18 PM PDT by DCBryan1

ITTLE ROCK (KATV) - A routine traffic stop Monday turned into a chase and ended with an officer-involved shooting.

Sgt. Cassandra Davis said a man in his 30s was pulled over for a traffic stop near the corner of 12th Street and Jefferson because he was believed to be driving a stolen black SUV. The suspect reportedly ran about five blocks behind a building at 1110 Adams Street.

Davis would not give further details about what escalated the situation into a shooting but did confirm that the suspect was dead. The officer was not injured.

Various witnesses have reported hearing anywhere from five to eight shots fired. Because the shooting happened behind a building, there are few witnesses who saw the entire situation.

As of 3:15 p.m., police still would not confirm if the suspect shot at police or was armed at all.

The owner of the car showed up around 2:45 and told KATV's Jason Pederson that the car was not stolen and the driver was her husband, 26-year-old Deon Williams. She said that he had spent some time in prison recently and was out on parole. While she said Williams may have been driving without a license when police pulled him over, she knew of no outstanding warrants that would motivate him to run.

A crowd of more than 100 by some estimates formed after the shooting. As of 3:00 p.m., the crowd was shrinking but becoming more vocal, some holding signs reading

When I drove by, it looked more like this: Cop at intersection said that the unruly crowd heard via Twitter that the victim was 12-years old (no skittles mentioned).....Victim was the cop that had to shoot a 30 yo on parole in a stolen vehicle.

Yeah, the traffic stop was "routine" until the black thief decided to run for it.

Sucks for him.

Let them keep self identifying as the weak-minded herd ... the time has arrived to deal with the democrips’ division of Americans. No better time to wake up and stomp the crap out of this anti-American racist foolishness than right now, with the criminal racists so exposed. Let their low IQ minions self-identify! They come in several colors too, if you want diversity!

An incident similar to this occurred about 10 years ago in Cincinnati. A white cop chasing a black male thru a maze of alleys in the downtown area in the dark of night, the suspect runs into a dead end alley, turns and appears to point a weapon at the officer. Officer shoots and kills the suspect. Turns out no weapon was found. The dead suspect has a extensive criminal record ... no matter, nearly a week of rioting ensued.

Doesn't sound like the dead guy was a thief - owner of the car showed up and said he was her husband. Just out of jail and driving without a license. Of course, more information will probably become available as this situation develops.

A spokesperson with the NAACP at one point used a police cruiser's loudspeaker system to ask the crowd to at least send any children or teens home so that if the situation escalates they will be safe. He also told the crowd that a vigil being held tonight at the State Capitol at 8:30 in honor of Trayvon Martin would be a better venue to show their frustrations with this incident.

Not a bad tactic to ask people to send the kids away, not just because it helps protect them but also helps defuse the situation. However if people want to take bets on what happens a the State Capitol tonight, have at it ...

“Where all these people found time to get off work, I have no idea.”

What freaking work?!

The man owes them a living and if you don’t pay up they will rob your butt and then riot if they get caught.

I’ve never seen a bunch of such low life people who THINK they are discriminated against by the very people providing them with everything they have. And don’t appreciate anything. They continue to demand more.

I am so sick of it!

They will never change because they don’t know how. Their entire life they have been told how bad they have it and how it is never their fault they can’t get ahead.

Like a bunch of feral hogs running around destroying everything they touch. Makes me want to puke!

And believe me, they aren’t all black, not by a long shot.

Deon Lamar Williams, 26

Williams was convicted on the drugs charges as an habitual offender.

Some members of the crowd started yelling profanities at police. Dozens of officers have responded to keep the situation under control. They also established a staging area around two miles away for fast response should extra police presence become necessary.

A spokesperson with the NAACP at one point used a police cruiser's loudspeaker system to ask the crowd to at least send any children or teens home so that if the situation escalates they will be safe. He also told the crowd that a vigil being held tonight at the State Capitol at 8:30 in honor of Trayvon Martin would be a better venue to show their frustrations with this incident.

So when do our non-representatives call for a, "Trayvon holiday"?

A museum?

Will Travon's picture be memorized on the dollar bill?

Rename schools...Rename government buildings?

Trayvon Martin High School!

Trayvon Martin Memorial Park!

Ahhhhhhh.....Little Rock. I used to go there for business. I was sitting in the breakfast area of the motel one morning watching the local news with other guests. There had been six murders the previous night. One of the victims was a young woman working for Sears at a tent sale in the parking lot. She was hacked to death with a lawn mower blade. All of us in that breakfast room looked at each other and shook our heads.

I’d like to know what compelled the officer to shoot a seemingly unarmed man. This is quite serious if police are going to shoot unarmed people because they “feel threatened” or some such nonsense.

If you don’t think this matters well, how the H do you think we ended up with warrantless searches and no-knock dynamic entry apprehensions? We wound up with them because no one complained when it was done first in the urban ghettos during the ‘80s’ War on Drugs.

Take heed now before the ‘shoot-when-uncomfortable’ comes to your neighborhood and possibly you.

I like Western civilization and its code of law and am very concerned when due process is ignored. If I was in Little Rock I can tell you right now I would be at the capitol tonight in protest.
