Evidence extracted from vehicle that dropped off shooting victims

Six .40 caliber shell casings and one bullet were extracted from the vehicle that dropped off three shooting victims at a Conway hospital last week.

 

The Conway Police Department responded to a shots fired call shortly after 11 p.m. Wednesday near King’s Inn Motel and later learned the victims in the case were taken to a nearby hospital. Police went to Conway Regional Medical Center to question the victims involved in the shooting incident.

A search warrant revealed the driver of the black Kia Sportage, Kenyada Boyd, that drove the three victims — Carterus Toney, 19, Chaunsen McCuien, 20, and Stanley Waters, 42 — to the Conway Regional Medical Center Emergency Room told detectives the incident took place in the vehicle.

“Officers at the scene learned from the driver of the vehicle, Kenyada Boyd, that the shooting had taken place inside the vehicle,” the search warrant affidavit reads.

Detectives searched the vehicle after obtaining the search warrant and extracted six .40 caliber shell casings and one bullet among other pieces of evidence from the vehicle.

“In plain view, officers noticed multiple bullet holes in the seats and doors of the vehicle, two broken windows, blood in one of the seats, and multiple shell casings in the vehicle,” the affidavit states.

Shell casings were extracted from the back passenger seat and door pocket as well as from below and underneath the front passenger seat. A fifth casing was extracted from underneath the driver’s floorboard.

According to the affidavit, detectives found a bullet inside the driver’s side back passenger door panel and a black and silver Taurus pt140 Pro. Detectives swabbed the handgun for traces of DNA.

CPD spokesman LaTresha Woodruff said as of press time Monday there were no suspects named in this case.

“The investigation into what led to the shooting outside a Conway motel continues,” she said.

Two of the victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries and the third was transferred to a Little Rock hospital.

“At the time of the shooting, two of the shooting victims were deemed to have non-life-threatening injuries,” Woodruff said Monday. “The third shooting victim had injuries that were severe enough that he was transported to a Little Rock hospital.”

The condition of the shooting suspects was not readily available by press time Monday.
