Local News

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Investigators were on the scene of a Sunday afternoon homicide, the fourth in the city in less than 24 hours.

Little Rock police initially responded to a report of an accident in the 8400 block of Labette Drive just after 1:00 p.m. Sunday.

There they found the 24-year-old Zachary Ester inside a wrecked car, dead from a gunshot wound.

After speaking to witnesses investigators believe the shooting happened inside the vehicle, which then ran in reverse into a utility pole.

There is no word yet on who is responsible.

This comes after a series of homicides in the past 24 hours, with an arrest made after the killing of a woman on Longcoy Street yesterday afternoon and two others overnight on Mara Lynn and Geyer Springs.
