The Little Rock Police Department has identified Scott Stovall, 50, as the off-duty officer who fatally wounded Jovon Allen, 21, after Allen reportedly jumped him and tried to rob him Sunday night on the parking lot of an apartment complex at 2300 Rebsamen Park Road.
Stovall has been on the force since January 1988. He’s assigned to the Northwest Division as a motorcycle officer.
Stovall said Allen fired at him as he fled the scene. A companion took him to a hospital, where he died of multiple gunshot wounds.
