    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 clientís case to juvenile court.

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

    A local judge today denied a murder suspect's request to have his case moved to juvenile court.

Plus, it didnít help that these two idiots were just openly firing weapons in an area of the city thatís heavily populated with families. Theyíll throw the book at them just to use them to set an example in an attempt to crack down on the 35% increase in homicides in Little Rock from 2016 to 2017.

    Suspect in killing of Little Rock toddler ordered to give fingerprints as police investigate earlier armed attack

    http://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2...=news-arkansas

    Deshaun Malik Rushing, one of two suspects in the November 2016 slaying of a Little Rock toddler, was fingerprinted at court order on Thursday as police work to link him to an armed attack on a 62-year-old Little Rock man that occurred about a week before the girl was killed.

    Rushing, 22, and Larry James Jackson, 17, are each charged with capital murder and unlawful discharge of a firearm over the slaying of 2-year-old Ramiya Reed. Prosecutors are seeking life sentences for the pair.

    Rushing is scheduled to stand trial in May, while proceedings against Jackson are on hold while his lawyer appeals Circuit Judge Barry Sims' December order that the teen stand trial as an adult.
