A shooting at a west Little Rock bar early Monday left one person hospitalized, according to the Little Rock Police Department.

The victim, was sitting in a corner at West End Smokehouse & Tavern, 215 N. Shackleford Road, around 1:45 a.m. when someone entered and asked to play pool for $50 bets, according to a report.

Officers noted that the person came in “already highly intoxicated” and had asked several patrons before agreeing to play with the victim, 28-year-old Cortez Roy of Little Rock.


During the game, an altercation ensued, which resulted in a woman who had entered with the shooter being pushed to the floor, police said.

As the shooter left the bar, Roy followed behind and was shot when the assailant turned around and fired at least four times with a black semi-automatic handgun, the report states.

Roy, who was found by authorities lying on the floor, was transported to Baptist Medical Center in Little Rock for two bullet wounds to his abdomen, according to authorities.  LRPD found Roy, because MEMS paramedics won't go in to such establishments until LRPD arrives. 

Police spokeswoman Officer Michelle Hill said in a statement that Roy remained in serious condition as of Monday afternoon.

Witnesses said the shooting “happened so fast,” which police say makes it unlikely for the shooter to have gone outside to retrieve the weapon.

A physical description of the assailant was not available.

In a later statement, the Little Rock Police Department said that the person sought, a black female, could help identify the assailant who wounded 28-year-old Cortez Roy of Little Rock.

“The female subject is not the shooter. She was just with the shooter and could possibly identify him,” the agency said on Twitter.

No doubt tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet will don his bullet resistant vest and lead his elite team of agents in a special investigation and solve the case for LRPD and issue a citation to the bar.

***UPDATE - 05/19/17***

Little Rock Police named a woman today sought for questioning in the shooting earlier this week and released surveillance footage from inside the bar.


A witness identified as Jasmaine Monique Barbee, is wanted for questioning in the case. LRPD says Barbee is not wanted on charges.

Barbee is not unknown to LRPD.
