    AR - Ramiya Reed, 2, fatally shot, Little Rock, 22 Nov 2016

    http://www.arkansasmatters.com/news/...ting/611715963

    I'm surprised this has never been posted. If it has I apologize for the double post - I just haven't been able to find this anywhere.

    This shooting happened about 3 weeks before a 3 year old was shot and killed while riding in a car in another part of Little Rock (about 15-20 minutes away). However, the cases aren't related. The man who killed the 3 year old has been caught and arraigned and is now awaiting trial for several charges, including capital murder.

    The shooting of the 2 year old happened about 7 blocks from where I lived for over 10 years. No one has been caught and there haven't been any leads or any updates in the news since her death other than the attached post regarding the reward. This is a horrific crime that should not go unpunished and for two families in Little Rock to lose toddlers in such a short time span AND during the holidays is completely unthinkable. Hopefully keeping this case open and discussed will help bring someone to justice and give the family some closure.

    17-year-old accused in killing of Little Rock toddler seeks juvenile status

    In his transfer petition, Proctor acknowledges that Jackson has prior convictions both in juvenile court and as an adult. He describes Jackson's prospects for rehabilitation in the juvenile-justice system as "extremely good."

    "The offense is not a part of a repetitive pattern of adjudicated offenses that would lead to the determination that the juvenile is beyond rehabilitation," the petition states. "The prior history, character traits and mental maturity all indicate that the juvenile's prospects for rehabilitation are extremely good."
    Jackson is to stand trial on Dec. 5, and Rushing's trial is set for February. Chief deputy prosecutor John Johnson told the judge he wanted to try Jackson first.

    The attorney for 21-year-old Deshaun Rushing asked for another hearing since he was just brought onto the case. Meanwhile, the attorney for 17-year-old Larry Jackson reminded the court he filed a motion to move his client’s case to juvenile court.

    Both suspects are scheduled to reappear in court on December 4th.
