Around noon on Wednesday, officers responded to reports of a white male who lay bleeding in an alley between South 16th and South 17th streets. They say 36-year-old Jamie Lee Czeck, of Kibler, was already dead when they arrived, apparently the victim of multiple gunshot wounds.
Investigators questioned several neighbors who said they heard gunshots Tuesday evening. Some said they saw a car leaving the alley heading south around the time of the shooting.
Detectives are investigating this death as a homicide and Czeck's body will be sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy. Police have not released a possible motive or suspects.
