25 people were shot in a nightclub in Little Rock, Arkansas, early Saturday morning and three others suffered unrelated injuries, police said.
The Little Rock police chief said officers suspect multiple people fired weapons but that the incident was not terror related.
The gunfire erupted at the Power Ultra Lounge in downtown Little Rock around 2:30 a.m. local time. Later Saturday morning, the Little Rock Police Department wrote on Twitter: “At this time, all are expected to survive.”
This video posted online by a club patron shows everyone having a great time with a full house for Finese 2Tymes, a performer from Memphis, Tennessee before the shooting happened.
Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson issued this statement following the shooting
“Little Rock’s crime problem appears to be intensifying. Every few days it seems a high-profile shooting dominates the news, culminating with this morning’s event,” Hutchinson said in a statement. “We are still gathering facts, but it is clear that we need to have a comprehensive enforcement strategy in place that helps take the violent threats off the streets.”
This shooting follows a week of multiple drive-by shootings in Little Rock, but none which indicate being linked.
