Brian Brooks - Little Rock's 44th homicide victim of 2019

The incident with Brooks started in Sherwood when Sherwood police attempted to stop Brooks for an alleged traffic violation.

Sherwood police alleged Brooks refused to pull over and gave chase.

Brooks allegedly fled from Sherwood to Little Rock where Ellison joined in the chase.

You already know how the chase ended.

It was a secret until we found out about it. 

The Arkansas State Police, the Little Rock Police Department and the City of Little Rock wanted to sweep it under the rug. 

44 homicides makes Little Rock look like a dangerous place. Especially when three of them were committed by law enforcement officers.

But Little Rock is a dangerous place. In fact it is consistently listed at the most dangerous city of its size.

Little Rock has a violent crime index shockingly higher than the national average.

This is not the first time Ellison has committed a homicide.

The first time was back in 2016 when he was employed by the Benton Police  Department.

Ellison shot and killed a suicidal high school student as he was following Ellison's commands to lower a handgun the student had pointed at his own head.

That homicide resulted in a lawsuit and Ellison and the Benton Police Department.

Brian Brooks homicide is the subject of an internal investigation conducted by the Arkansas State Police.

Lt. Darren Austin is the lead investigator.

We have sent FOI requests to Sherwood PD and the ASP for any video recordings and other records.

We expect them to stall claiming on-going investigations.

Stay tuned for updates.
