LITTLE ROCK, AR - The city of Little Rock has seen its 43rd homicide this year, and is on track to break its record 76 killings in 1993.  About 3 a.m. this morning, police responded to a shooting call and found a man lying dead in the street.

The man was identified as 44-year-old Phillip Williams of Little Rock.  Police do not have a motive for the shooting or any suspects.

Witnesses told police they heard Williams say, "Lord, please don't do this to me," then heard four or five gunshots.  When the witnesses looked outside they saw someone standing over Williams but they could not provide officers with a description.
