Nov 24 -Arkansas man shot to death in mysterious incident at boss’ home

Arkansas state police are investigating the shooting death of a Little Rock man who was fatally shot during a lunch at his boss’ home.

Police responded to the home of Chris Reynolds on Friday, November 9th, after Reynolds allegedly called police to report he’d shot 21-year-old Ernest Hoskins Jr.

Hoskins and three other employees of Raynell Industries, a green technology firm, were attending a lunch at Reynolds’ home near Ward, Arkansas. According to Ben Crump, a lawyer for Hoskins’ mother and his widow, the family was told that at some point during the lunch, Reynolds allegedly produced a 44 Magnum Desert Eagle pistol, pointed it at Hoskins, and pulled the trigger, fatally wounding his young employ in the jaw.

“For whatever reason, he pointed the gun at the only African-American guy at the table,” Crump told theGrio, adding that two weeks later, Reynolds has still not been arrested.

“Ernest was the only man in his family,” Crump said. “His mother has two daughters, his father died” years earlier.

“In any jurisdiction in the world, even in Arkansas, this should have resulted in arrest,” Crump said.

Hoskins’ widow, Nikkisha, 25, who goes by Nikki is an Army specialist based at Camp Robinson, near Little Rock. She and Hoskins had wed privately in July, and were planning a big wedding ceremony for extended family and friends in December, with a pre-wedding party planned for November 17th.

“Instead, the guests for that wedding party attended a funeral,” Crump said. “And Nikki has got a wedding dress that she’s never gonna get to wear.”

Crump added that the shooting took place just before Veterans Day, “with Nikki serving in the U.S. Army.”

Nikki Hoskins told theGrio Friday that Ernest loved his job, and got along well with Reynolds.

“He brought us gifts, he invited us over to his house for dinner numerous times” she said of Reynolds, adding that her husband and his boss “seemed to have a very good relationship between the two of them.”

Neither Nikki nor Hoskins’ mother, Monica Hoskins, noticed any outward signs of trouble. And Monica said her son was relieved to find a job that would help him provide for his family.

Hoskins was completing a degree at the University of Phoenix and his wife was a graduate of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. They were. Adoptive parents to a young girl initially taken in by Nikki.

Both Monica and Nikki Hoskins expressed disappointment with what they have been told so far by police.

“I talked to a detective, and all they can tell me is it’s an ongoing investigation,” Monica Hoskins said.

“I got a phone call telling me to come home, and I thought it was a joke at first,” Nikki Hoskins said of her initial contact with police. “They called me by my (full) name so I was like, maybe this is serious. But it didn’t really dawn on me that something was wrong until I called my husband’s cellphone and it went to voicemail. I went home and saw the trooper’s car in the driveway.”

Nikki Hoskins said police told her Hoskins was k!lled “by his boss” but that “the man doesn’t know why he k!lled my husband.”

“I felt like I died,” she added. “You couldn’t have told me my husband was not going to come home today because I would have called you a liar.”

The family is demanding an arrest in the case. Two witnesses to the shooting have reportedly spoken with the Hoskins family.

TheGrio contacted Arkansas state police seeking comment but were told the office responsible for investigations in the Ward area would be closed until Monday.

What case does this remind you of? It's been two weeks...


[
B]High-Profile Attorney Demands Arrest in Ward Shooting Case[/B]

A North Little Rock woman is stepping up her efforts to make sure the man who shot and k!lled her husband is put behind bars.

The victim's wife and mother say, authorities have told them who shot Ernest Hoskins Jr. November 9th in Ward, but two weeks later the person is still free. Hoskins' family has hired an attorney working on the high profile shooting death of Trayvon Martin, hoping to push police, to act soon.

"If someone could just tell me why this man has not been arrested for k!lling my son," Monica Hoskins asked at a press conference Friday afternoon.

Her question, part of an emotional plea from a mother, desperate for answers in the shooting death of her only son.

"Ernest was my baby, that was my son. Never made momma cry, never made me cry until now," she added, holding back tears.

These days, questions, memories and photos are all Monica and Nikki Hoskins have to hold on to since Ernest Hoskins Jr. was k!lled at what they believe was a business meeting gone wrong.

His widow claims, police told her who did it, that night.

"He did say 'he confessed'. He said 'he made a terrible mistake' but nothing was done," said Nikki Hoskins.

It's evidence the family claims police have, but wont use. To add pressure, they've hired attorney Benjamin Crump.


"Imagine it was your husband who gets shot point blank range and they have the witnesses, they have the gun and a confession, but yet the k!ller walks free," Crump asked rhetorically.

Crump helped push the shooting of Florida teen Trayvon Martin into the national spotlight. Now, like the Martin family, Hoskins' mother and widow are making their pain public.

"He had to tell me twice for it to register in to my head, hey your husband is not coming home tonight," said Nikki Hoskins.

They're hoping to move police to hold the shooter accountable quickly so they can begin moving on.

State police say the investigation is still open. While the family claims they've been told who the shooter is by police and a witness, we're withholding the name, as authorities have not identified the person as a suspect.

I broke my thumb firing a DE when I was like 17. sh*ts still fuhked up.

Anyway, this look like maybe the boss mighta been joking or something. You know, how white people usually do with n*ggas. And he may have fired the sh*t by accident. I know muthafuhkas gonna read my sh*t & get all salty but thats why I leave white folks alone outside of work. Muthafuhka was probably doing some ol' "yo bro Ima ghetto thug what?!" Type bullsh*t with the gun on ol' boy & ended up buckin' him by accident.

What do you tell your children? Really, I mean really. Do you lie to them? Or do you tell them their life is worthless? Right now they have a microscope on the victim's life trying to figure out any way to let his k!ller go.

This case doesn't remind me of anything

If you're suggesting Travyon Martin, please k!ll yourself.

Also, this is fishy... where were the three other employees at when this happened? Were they at the table and witnesses? It says 2 of them spoke to the family, but not the police? Arkansas we gotta do better

Reminds me of both the Oscar Grant case and the Trayvon Martin case. You tell your kids get an education, get a good job, and racism won't matter. This man was k!lled by his boss his wife says the police know who k!lled him, the police have eye witnesses, and still nothing. Who would've thought arresting a murderer would be too much to ask? People want to talk about equality, for now I'd just like to feel that if a white man k!lls me he'll at least be arrested. And how do you look at your kids and explain that to them?

This has nothing to do with the Trayvon Martin case other than a white man shot a black man. I mean you have really have to sink that low?

These two knew each other, had an employee-employer relationship, the man was over his house etc. How is that at all similar to the Trayon Martin case?

I think it's crazy how he hasn't been arrested yet and hopefully justice will be served, but don't disrespect this man's death or Trayvon Martin's case just to try and stir up more racial bullsh*t on this site, as if there isn't enough of that already.

White man k!lls black man/kid, in front of witnesses, law enforcement knows who it is, unusual amount of time passes before arrest is made if an arrest is even made. All of those things are true for both Trayvon Martin and now Earnest Hoskins jr.

Except that Zimmerman was trying to say it was out of self defense and was lying trying to get his own way out of it. The man who k!lled him admitted he did. He confessed and said he had made a big mistake. The police HAVE HIS CONFESSION. This one is on the police, they have everything they need to arrest him but are choosing not to.

In Trayvon Martin's case, Zimmerman was trying to get out of it.

fu*king disgusting the dude murderED SOMEONE IN COLD fu*kING BLOOD and he hasn't been arrested and brought in for questioning? WHAT KIND OF sh*t, this is why I hate this country with a fu*king passion, I swear to God man someone needs to wipe this place off the face of the planet. If a Black dude shot his White employee you know he would be arrested instantly without bail. I mean come on, I'm tired of this White privilege bullsh*t, and Blacks are so fu*king blind they won't ever do sh*t about this

RIP to this kid man, he was still young and had his whole life ahead of him and this piece of sh*t White dude took that from him and his family. I'm fu*king heated right now, fu*king PISSED. This bastards needs to get lynched for taking this kids life, Blacks need to get on some vigilante sh*t like Whites did us back in the day, but no we too pus*y sometimes I wish I wasn't Black bruh, get the worst end of the fu*king stick.
