More people were trampled and injured while trying to escape the building. The gunman is still at large. Someone at the Nightclub was able to capture video footage of the club and the sound of gunfire and people screaming. The video is included in the first news article reporting the story.

    Here, I'll help you out with a better link. A suggestion for next time, if I may: Use the local news outlet instead of some off-the-wall site.

    You're welcome, you could also check rival news outlets in Little Rock, sometimes one will have more information than others. ;)

    Good idea! I was trying to avoid MSM news sources because they are known for fake news stories. According to at least one recent poll two thirds of the American people believe that Mainstream Media (CNN, AP, MSNBC, WP, New York Times.....) publish fake news. They are definitely not reliable and cannot be trusted to report the truth.
    Poll: Majority says mainstream media publishes fake news

    The local TV stations are definitely a more reliable source for stories such as this one!

    According to your news source 25 people were shot. There was an earlier report of one person counting 30 gunshots from that video. The gun fire is so erratic I couldn't tell how many shots were fired. 25 people shot (and 3 more injured by stampede to escape) by a gun man should have been reported as an "active shooter" but the first media report said the police believed the gunman not to be an active shooter or an act of terrorism (not exact wording). If the gunman is still at large (and he is) then he is an active shooter. Isn't he? About the poster advertising this rapper. Is that a weapon in his hand? It certainly looks like it. There are reports that the dispute was a 'rapper dispute' which is all too common. There have been many cases of rappers being killed and it could be their rivals targeted them over their music. As one commenter noted, When have we ever heard of people opening fire at a country music concert? It does not happen. But when you have violence being promoted via rap music such incidents occur. Could it be the culture of the music and those who listen to it? It reminds me of the Scripture, Violence begets violence.....

    Yeah, to say no active shooter, was stupid, in my opinion. Yet again, by the time they reported no shooting was occurring, I guess. And the suspects remain at large, whether wounded or not. They are saying it might be tied to the drive by shootings they've had over the last 9 days as well.
    And it is terror related, even if domestic, particularly if related to the drive by shootings..
    The latest, 2 remain critical-


    Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner said he had no information to release on suspects and that the general public is not believed to be at risk. The violence may be tied to recent shootings in Little Rock, where about a dozen drive-by cases have been reported in recent days.

    "We certainly feel like there's a possibility there may be a connection," Buckner said.


    Buckner noted that police were on duty outside the club patrolling the parking lot from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. and at one point stopped a person who was "openly carrying a weapon." He said that person may have gotten in a different entrance.

    The club's website listed information about a performance by an artist named Finese 2 Tymes that was scheduled for Friday night. He later posted a statement on Facebook offering prayers for the victims and condemning the violence.

    Stodola criticized the event, which he said was promoted with an image featuring a gun. He noted the alcohol permit had already been revoked for the establishment and that it would not reopen.

    "We will be shutting this location down. Absolutely," he said. "This activity downtown is going to cease."

    Local news says the club was having a Rap concert.
