Man shot to death in Conway while helping daughter with flat tire
Friday, September 9th 2016

CONWAY (KATV) Conway police tell Channel 7 News a man was shot to death early Friday morning while trying to help his daughter fix a flat tire on her car.

Robert Lee Givens, 66, was shot and killed as he drove along Donaghey Avenue near Independence around 12:30 a.m. Friday.

Givens' daughter tells police he picked her up and drove to Walmart to get Fix-A-Flat. After they left the store, a tan-colored SUV drove up behind them on Hairston Street and flashed its lights. Givens pulled over and spoke to the driver, who apparently said he mistakenly thought her father was someone else.

After they drove off, the driver of the SUV pulled up beside them on Donaghey and Independence and shot Givens, who then crashed his vehicle into the yard of a nearby house.

Police say the shooter fled the area. Givens was pronounced dead at the scene.

The daughter was only able to describe the driver as a young black man and said there was a white woman in the passenger seat of the SUV.
