A shooting in a Little Rock nightclub has left at least 17 people injured, according to local police, who said they did not believe it was a terrorist-related attack.
Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner told KTHV that the shooting, which occurred around 2:30 a.m., appears to have been the result of a “dispute [that] broke out between people inside.”
We do NOT believe this incident was an active shooter or terror related incident. It appears to have been a dispute at a concert.
