'Dispute' at concert leaves 25 shot, 3 injured at Little Rock nightclub, Republican wack jobs blamed

As of Saturday afternoon, no one has died, thankfully, after 25 were shot and 3 injured after shooting broke out overnight at a Little Rock, Ark., nightclub. (Numbers have been updated since the initial reports.)


Authorities do not believe this was terrorism or even an active shooter, but rather shots breaking out in a crowded room after a dispute turned violent. CNN reported Saturday:

Twenty-five people were shot and three others sustained related injuries at the Ultra Power Lounge in the Arkansas capital.
At least one person is listed in serious condition. Victims ranged in age from 16 to the mid-20s and were being treated at area hospitals.

Police have no motive for the shooting, and no arrests have been made.

Little Rock Police held a press briefing Saturday, and while we expect plenty of people are going to willfully quibble over the definition of “active shooter,” this certainly doesn’t look like a carefully planned attack, but rather  just people who shouldn’t have guns having guns — which, predictably, will have people blaming the NRA and the “gun show loophole.”


Gov. Asa Hutchinson released a statement acknowledging that “Little Rock’s crime problem appears to be intensifying.” There have been about a dozen drive-by shootings in Little Rock this week, including one that injured a 7-year-old.


You got us. This is exactly the sort of thing the NRA and the GOP are always working to promote. Again, no arrests have been made, but we’d really like to hear a little bit more about the shooters and how long they’ve been paid-up members of the NRA.

KATV reports that Finese Twotymes, the rapper who was performing, issued a statement on Facebook:

Prayers go to the innocent people and their family that came out to support me last night in Little Rock, Ark. The violence is not for the club people. We all come with one motive at the end of the day, and that’s to have fun. Not to be hurt. So again, I send my condolences to the people who were hurt.

Maybe it was a miracle that no one was killed, or maybe it’s just a reminder that most gunshot incidents aren’t fatal and therefore don’t grab headlines — hence anti-gun celebrities like Bette Midler confusing shootings and homicides:

Authorities didn’t waste any time suspending the club’s permit after the shooting, although the club has been cited frequently for violations.
