Family, law enforcement pleads for information in 2018 murder of April Harris


LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- Family members and law enforcement made impassioned pleas Friday as they continue to search for new leads in the murder of April Harris.

The mother of four was shot and killed by a man wearing a ski mask on January 19, 2018, while walking to her car with her children at the Fairfax Crossing Apartments on the 5900 block of McCain Place in North Little Rock. She was carrying her daughter, who was 5 years old at the time. The 5-year-old was injured in the shooting but recovered.

Deputies say the man did not say anything to Harris before he fired his gun and ran off.

While it has been more than three years since Harris was killed, the pain and emotion are still raw for her family and for those searching for her killer.

On Friday, investigators with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office said that while all of their unsolved cases call for justice, this case screams for justice.

Deputies say over time, they have received several leads but they still need more. They say any little tip could help close the case.

The victim’s family also had a firm message for the public.

“For me, I live that day every day over, and over and over,” said Tammie Fleming, April Harris’ mother. “I cannot rest until I find out who is responsible for my daughter’s death. So I’m asking anyone in the community if you know anything, anything, the smallest thing. If you don’t feel comfortable reaching out to the detectives, we have a Facebook page for April, you can reach out to us.

The Facebook page is called “Justice for April Harris Mother of Four”.
