Here’s your open line.

But, first, some more reporting from KARK on that mysterious attempted robbery/abduction in Conway County last Friday. Four people are in custody. One of them is a former employee of the man targeted. The victim previously had refused to prosecute a murder-for-hire case against the same ex-employee. One of the alleged co-conspirators was fatally shot by the victim’s son.

Speaking of crime: Fox 16 has posted video from the convenience store shooting Sunday.
