Here’s the Sunday open line with some crime and punishment news:

* CRIME: Little Rock police said two people were shot about 7:40 p.m. on Montclair Drive in Central Little Rock. One victim told police the shooting was the work of the “Monroe Gang,” and a juvenile suspect was identified as the man shooting an AR-15. The wounded were identified as Amanda Odom, 19, who was in a car that had several bullet holes, and  Chris Wallace, 21, at a house near the car. Odom and Wallace both suffered gunshot wounds to the stomach. Montclair runs north of 20th about midway between Fair Park Blvd. and Cedar Street.

* PUNISHMENT: State Police announced the arrest Sunday in Springdale of Steven Dishman, who escaped from custody on a seven-year burglary and theft sentence in Washington County in 1985 and has been at large ever since.  A sidelight of this case was the false arrest of a man believed erroneously to be Dishman in San Diego in 2014. That arrest spurred a false arrest lawsuit. No details as yet of what led to Dishman’s discovery.
