An Arkansas man is suffering life-threatening injuries after a shooting in Little Rock on Thursday night.

The Little Rock Police Department was called out to the 4400 block of W. 27th Street at approximately 10:14 p.m. for a shooting that just occurred.

That's where police found 39-year-old Morris Combee of North Little Rock on the ground and suffering from a gunshot wound to the left side of his chest and the pelvic area.

A witness told authorities he heard three to five gunshots then saw Combee running on 27th before he fell in a yard. Combee was taken to UAMS, where doctors said he would need surgery.

According to the police report, Combee described the suspect as a light-skinned black male who stands at approximately 5'10" and weighs 160 lbs. The suspect was shirtless and wearing khaki pants and glasses. Witnesses said he was last seen northbound on Peyton St.

Investigators at the crime scene found three shell casings in the street. They also located a white Ford SUV that was stolen out of Oklahoma on Thursday and concluded it was part of the crime as well.

Anyone with information in the case is encouraged to call the Little Rock Police Department.
