ARREST OF SUNDAY MORNING'S SHOOTER
Collaborating with local, as well as Federal agencies, Ricky ASHLEY was arrested last evening after a short foot pursuit in Little Rock.
Members of the United States Marshal Service (USMS), Eastern Arkansas Fugitve Task Force, working closely with Saline County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) and Little Rock Police Department received information from concerned citizens that ASHLEY was in a specific area of Little Rock last night at approximately 10:00 pm.
Officers from the Little Rock PD and Task Force Officers from the USMS spotted ASHLEY and quickly made the arrest.
ASHLEY was transported to the SCSO Detention Center where he is being held on a warrant for Aggrevated Assault.
The victim in that case remains in serious condition at an area hospital.
SCSO Sheriff Rodney Wright would like to thank all of the agencies who particpated in this search and apprehension. Equally, he would like to thank the media for posting ASHLEY’s photograph and the public for their support and assistance in notifying law enforcement of ASHLEY’s whereabouts.
