The teenager who died in this incident has been identified as Bobby Moore, 15, of Little Rock. Police say he was behind the wheel of a stolen 2011 Honda Civic.
Original story (August 12):
Police are not releasing the identities of any of the juveniles involved in an early Sunday morning shooting.
A mother at the scene told KARK she was told the victim was her son, by everyone but police.
"I'm the momma," said Sylvia Perkins, "I need to know something -- they need to tell me something," she says.
Police were called to the Shadow Lake Apartments off West Markham just after five o'clock Sunday morning.
According to police, two people were seen breaking in to parked cars.
The two then jumped into a waiting car with another teen already behind the wheel. All allegedly tried to get away by driving toward the officers, according to police.
That's when they said one of the officers opened fire.
"Got a call at 5 this morning," said Starkeshia Perkins. "Saying the police killed my little cousin."
Family gathered at the scene told KARK the victim is Bobby Moore, 15.
"He was only 15 years old," said Perkins, "You shot him three times in the chest then you don't give my aunt any answers?"
Dozens of family members and friends waited for hours Sunday. They said no one let them know what was happening.
"If my son is back there dead," said Perkins, "let me know something."
The other two juveniles in the car during the shooting ran away but were arrested a short time later and charged with breaking and entering an automobile.
Police also said the car they were in was reported stolen two days ago.
Moore's mother said she isn't trying to say her son was perfect.
"It's a child," said Perkins. "It's a 15 year old child. I don't care what he was out here doing."
As is the department's policy, the officer involved in the shooting, Officer Josh Hastings, 26, is on administrative leave pending the completion of the investigation.
