The U.S. Marshals assisted the Little Rock police in the case. Both law enforcement agencies worked with Holmes’ family to convince him to surrender to police.
The 3-year-old’s death is the second child fatally shot in a car within a month and the 40th homicide on the year for the city.
He was killed while riding in his grandmother’s car. Neither the grandmother, Kim King-Macon nor Acen’s one-year-old sibling were harmed in the shooting.
