TOP STORY >> Shooting involves woman

Cabot police are investigating a Sunday night shooting in an apartment at 898 W. Myrtle St. that they are calling first-degree domestic battery with serious physical injury.

Sgt. Keith Graham, police spokesman, said officer John Dodd II answered a 911 call at 10:54 p.m. and found Frederick Lamont Ford, 40, of 5705 Hwy. 161 in North Little Rock lying face down on the living room floor.

Ford appeared to have been shot three times and was taken by Med Flight to Baptist Medical Center in Little Rock. He was in critical condition on Tuesday, Graham said. The apparent shooter, Halelle Hooten, 31, who lived in the apartment, was sitting on the couch.

Hooten’s father, Toby Hooten, 64, of Ward was in the apartment when police arrived. Graham said the investigation had not shown whether he was there when Ford was shot.

The police report said a Rossi .38-caliber revolver that belonged to Halelle Hooten was recovered at the scene. She was read her Miranda rights, but no one has been arrested and no charges have been filed, Graham said.
