At least 17 people were shot and more trampled at an Arkansas nightclub Power Ultra Lounge in Little Rock, when gunmen opened fire on Saturday morning.
The youngest person shot in what cops described as an ‘exchange of fire’ was a 16 year old.People were said to have gathered to watch Memphis rapper Finese2Tymes when the gunshots rang out. It’s not known whether the performer was one of the victims.
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, Dailymail reports.
Rankin is seen showing the blood on his clothing; a man is heard saying that he ‘can’t move’.
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.
