The shooting incident occurred around 10:17 p.m. on April 9 at the intersections of Duque Drive and McAllister Street, near Martin Luther King Drive.

Kenneth Smith, 18, of Ruston, was standing next to the bus stop with several friends when a white vehicle containing four black males pulled up.

Smith was shot in the right lower leg, and he was taken to Lincoln General Hospital, where he was treated and released later that night.

“Based on the information we have, Dickson is the only one who fired a weapon,” Hawkins said.
