After a dispute in an Arkansas Nightclub, shots began to ring out leaving 25 people with gunshot wounds and three more injured from the stampede to the doors. The shooting took place in the Power Ultra Lounge in Little Rock. The youngest victim was just 16 years old. No arrests have been made but police claim they have several suspects they are looking for. The shooting occurred at about 2:30 AM on Saturday morning.
Revelers had gathered to watch Memphis rapper Finese2Tymes when the gunshots rang out. It’s not known whether the performer was one of the victims.
Concertgoer Darryl Rankin was streaming the concert on Facebook when gunfire erupted. Witnesses say they heard at least 20 gunshots.
‘They got shot, man. I don’t know where they hit it,’ a man can be heard saying.
The concert is in full flow when the shots ring out without warning. People can be heard screaming as the screen goes black and people rush outside.
In the aftermath, blood is seen splattered on the ground, along with a ticket and a discarded pair of shades.

Michael Hibblen, news director at local radio station KUAR, told NPR that ‘people started jumping out windows to escape, landing on awnings below.
‘So, it would seem that at least some of the injuries were related to the broken glass and the falls,’ he said.
Local Rada Bunch was outside the club early Saturday after a friend told her that that her son had been at the club and may have been shot.
‘I’m sick of all the killing and I’m tired of all the shooting, the kids getting hurt,’ she said. It wasn’t immediately clear if her son was injured.
All of the victims are expected to survive and one who was in critical condition is now stable, police said.
Cops say the incident is not terror related, and the shooter is not active.
