Stop the Violence, NLR School District team up

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV 11 has long been a proponent of Stop the Violence, and Wednesday night, the group paired up with students from the North Little Rock School District to start a work group.

The message is to not give on stopping the violence, and the work group was started to help hammer that message home.

Stop the Violence organizers said they hope other teens will look at what happened to Jasmine Young and decide to turn their lives around before anyone else gets hurt in the crossfire. Young was shot and killed on Jan. 17, and her murderer still on the loose.

To hear more about the Stop the Violence Work Group, watch the video attached to this story.

iPad owner receives bizarre pics taken on missing tablet

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A North Little Rock businessman is attempting to track down his stolen iPad using photos taken by the woman who has his device.

A series of self portraits are among the numerous photos streaming onto Allen Engstram's iPhone.

After losing his iPad on a flight from Phoenix to Denver, he feared he'd never see the expensive tablet again.

Until, Engstram said, his son Mason got an interesting picture on his Apple device.

"He said mommy, who's this? And of course she said, I have no idea who that is. It showed up on my phone too," explained Engstram. "After a while we figured out what was going on. That's the person that has my iPad."

Engstram said the photo stream between his Apple devices and the one missing are leaving behind a trail of evidence.

Man acquitted of shooting at police, injuring K9 officer

MAUMELLE, Ark. (KTHV) - A Maumelle man has been acquitted of several charges stemming from a manhunt and shooting from 2012.

A judge pronounced Kenneth Alexander innocent because of mental disease or defect. Doctors testified that Alexander didn't know right from wrong at the time of the May 2012 shooting. The doctors say he was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia and was having an episode.

In May 2012, Alexander had allegedly threatened his brother. When police arrived, Alexander shot at them and fled, hiding under a house in North Little Rock. Alexander shot again and injured a K-9 dog, named Byrun. He was taken into custody after police used a stun grenade to get him out.
