Man faces attempted capital murder charge for Rogers drive-by shooting

Police responded to a gas station in Rogers Sunday morning after a man called saying he had just been injured in a drive-by shooting down the street.

ROGERS, Ark. — A man could be charged with attempted capital murder following a drive-by shooting in Rogers over the weekend. 

Officer Keith Foster with the Rogers Police Department said a 911 call was made Sunday (March 7) at 3:30 a.m. from the inside Kum & Go gas station on North Pleasant Grove Road and North Bloomington Street from a man who had just been injured in a drive-by shooting. 

During an investigation of the incident, police determined that the shooting happened down the street from the gas station near a Popeyes restaurant. 

Foster says the victim, who has not been identified, was walking near the resturant when Anthony Brown, 39, allegedly fired two shots from a vehicle, striking the man. 

The victim then walked to the Kum & Go gas station and called 911, where he was later met by first responders to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries. 

Foster says Brown was located at around 5 a.m. Sunday in Springdale, where he was arrested. 

Foster told 5NEWS Brown and the victim know each other. 

Brown faces several charges related to the shooting, including attempted capital murder, 1st-degree battery, unlawful discharge of a firearm from a vehicle and possession of a firearm by certain persons.

He is currently being held without bond at the Benton County Jail.
