Main Street homicide -- UPDATE



A 24-year-old woman was fatally shot in the 1300 block of Main Street about 2 a.m. today.

The police report is sketchy. The shooting occurred outside Juanita's, which had closed for the evening though some employees were still inside cleaning and a band was packing up its gear. Crystal Heard's body was found in Main Street. A male suspect reportedly fled on foot. A homicide detective this morning declined to provide further information about the circumstances or whether a suspect was in custody. An employee at Juanita's said he'd heard a second-hand account that the woman was struck by a gunshot intended for someone else.

UPDATE: Another bystander was apparently struck by a gunshot in the same incident. Kevin Montell Hubbard, 21, was in the 1300 block of Main when he observed a group of people from North Little Rock arguing. Then, according to police, "he heard someone start shooting and he started running." He was struck in the left flank by a bullet that exited around his stomach, but the injury was described as not life threatening.
