Little Rock Homicide Count Continues to Grow

SEPTEMBER 1, 2006 - Posted at 2:06 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A Little Rock man who was found shot in the head behind the wheel of a stolen car has died, marking the city's 44th homicide of the year. 

Lieutenant Terry Hastings, spokesman for the Little Rock Police Department, said 28-year-old Gminski Jordan, who was wounded Wednesday, died about 4:50 a.m. this morning.

Police said the wounded Jordan was found in a Lincoln Town Car with its engine running about 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday in a parking lot on the city's west side.  The car had been reported stolen in May from a grocery store parking lot.

In eight months, Little Rock has recorded more homicides in 2006 than the city saw in all of 2005.  In 1993, when Little Rock had a record 76 homicides, the city had 48 slayings through the end of August.
