Report: 28 People Injured In Shooting At Arkansas Nightclub

According to CNN, a shooting during a Finese2Tymes concert in Little Rock, Arkansas has left at least 28 people injured this morning. The incident allegedly happened as a result of a dispute at Power Ultra Lounge that ended in gunfire.

While suspects have not been identified at this time, the Little Rock Police Department tweeted that they “do NOT believe this incident was an active shooter or terror related incident.” NBC News reported that all of the wounded victims are alive and stable with “non-life-threatening injuries.” Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson released the following statement in response to the shooting:

The Little Rock Police Department held a press conference with city leaders this afternoon to further discuss the shooting. In a statement to the press, Little Rock Chief of Police Kenton Buckner described the shooting as “a blip on the map that we certainly didn’t need, considering the history that we’ve had over the past week” and has urged his team to be “very careful with our words” as “emotions are very high.”

Officials also confirmed that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is on board to help with the investigation. KATV reports that the Alcoholic Beverage Control has suspended the nightclub’s mixed drink permit and may issue more citations.
