AR Little Caesars Pizza Employee Who Shot Little Rock Customer Dead Arrested Murder Occurred In ‘Gun Free Zone’

LITTLE ROCK, AR. (THECOUNT) — Despite the Little Caesars “employee handbook” dictating no firearms allowed on the premises, whether carried by employees or patrons, a Little Rock pizzeria was the scene of a deadly shooting on Thursday.

Little Caesars employee, Domeque Latrice Jones, 26, fatally shot 33-year-old customer, Marcus Fleming inside the eatery on Thursday. Jones was arrested on a first-degree murder charge Friday afternoon.

Investigators believe Jones, who was employed Thursday at the Little Caesars at 3412 S. University Ave., used a handgun to fatally shoot Fleming on Thursday afternoon while both men were inside the business.

A sign on the door of the Little Caesars directed customers to use the drive-through Friday, saying the small front area where customers order food was “closed for renovation.” The signs were stapled onto plywood that covered shattered glass and bullet holes in the small establishment’s window and door, reports ArkansasOnline.

At about 4:45 p.m. Thursday, officers responded to the pizzeria after several people called 911 reporting that someone was shooting and they were hearing multiple gunshots. Emergency responders transported Fleming, who had been shot multiple times, to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, where he was later pronounced dead, police spokesman officer Eric Barnes said Friday. Several people were in or near the business at the time of the shooting, and Barnes said they told police that Fleming and Jones had argued before Jones began shooting. Several bullets traveled through the window and toward busy South University Avenue. Investigators said no vehicles or other structures were damaged in the gunfire.

Jones ran before police arrived, Ford said, but police identified him through witness statements. Investigators also retrieved video footage from at least one of the five security cameras inside the pizzeria, Ford said.

A supervisor for the chain directed all further questions to the chain’s corporate office, which did not return phone calls.

Mass Whale Stranding Occurring In Hawaii NOAA & University Scientists Puzzled

MUAI, HI. (THECOUNT) — Sad news coming out of Hawaii as we are learning at least a dozen melon-headed whales are stranded on a Maui beach this week.

Authorities say one whale calf has been found dead on a beach on the Hawaii island of Maui near where 10 other whales were found stranded alive. Veterinarians euthanized four of the whales after determining they were in grave condition and nothing more could be done to save them.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Regional Marine Mammal Response Coordinator David Schofield said Thursday the calf was found about a mile north of the other stranded whales.

Schofield says the calf is believed to be part of the same social grouping as the whales found alive.

The other six whales were refloated to the ocean. Schofield says the six came back ashore but eventually made it out to deeper water, according to YourCentralValley.

Officials said Thursday that veterinarians determined four of the stranded whales were in grave condition and nothing more could be done to save them.
