Two arrested after reported shooting at house Friday


Pine Bluff police arrested two men early Friday morning after shots were fired at a house in central Pine Bluff and the victim gave officers a description of a vehicle seen leaving the area.

Calvin Honorable, 23, and Damon Williams, 24, were arrested in the 2400 block of Laurel Street just before 4 a.m.

Detective James Williams reported that the victim told police he saw a man get out of an SUV and break windows of a vehicle in the yard and when he yelled at the man, saw the man shoot at the house, then get back into the SUV and leave.

Detective Williams reported that officers tried to stop the vehicle near 18th Avenue and Hazel Street and a man, later identified as Honorable, jumped out and ran. He was caught after a short chase and a .22-caliber handgun was found on the ground where Honorable was arrested.

A check of the gun’s serial number indicated it had been stolen, Detective Williams said in a probable cause affidavit, and said Honorable had “multiple felony convictions.”

Damon Williams, who was driving the vehicle and stayed in it when Honorable ran, claimed he had picked up Honorable a short time earlier and denied any knowledge of a shooting incident.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $100,000 bond for Honorable after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with being a felon in possession of a firearm, committing a terroristic act, and theft of property.

A $25,000 bond was set for Damon Williams on a charge of committing a terroristic act.

Honorable and Damon Williams were told to come back to court Jan. 11.
