Later Sunday morning, he saw that his lower driver’s side door had what looked to be a bullet hole in it. The man told police that he suspected a juvenile man may have been involved in the shooting.
2. Criminal mischief/theft by receiving at 300 block of Willow Street. Officers performed a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by a 17-year-old male Sunday afternoon and asked to search the vehicle. The teen refused, and the officer was advised by another officer who had taken the report of the man’s car being shot earlier in the morning to place the teen under arrest. A CZ 9-millimeter semiautomatic pistol was found in the teen’s vehicle.
3. Criminal trespass/unauthorized use of a vehicle/fleeing at 565 Front St. (Conway Block Co.) At about 1:15 Saturday morning, an officer driving back to CPD noticed a pickup truck turn into Conway Block Co. The officer slowly approached in his patrol car and got out to hear "what sounded to me like two kids playing around inside of Conway Block," according to the report. The officer yelled for the two juveniles to stop whatever it was that they were doing and come outside, at which point the officer heard what sounded like the juveniles running. According to the report, the juveniles ran up a flight of stairs into the top of the business and one fell, injuring his wrist. The two, both 13 years old, were arrested and the injured boy taken to Conway Regional Medical Center "for immediate surgery," according to the report.
