Vastavam web: Gunfire erupted at a hip-hop concert in a Little Rock, Arkansas nightclub early on Saturday morning, wounding 25 people and leading the governor to call for a fresh effort to reduce violent crime in the state capital.Two of those wounded at the Power Ultra Lounge were in critical condition, Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner told reporters at a press conference, while the rest of the victims suffered what he described as non-life-threatening injuries.Buckner said no suspects had been taken into custody in connection with the melee, which may have stemmed from a dispute between rival groups. He said the general public was not believed to be at risk and that the incident was not related to terrorism.

The shooting started at about 2:30 a.m. local time on Saturday, about 30 minutes after the downtown club’s scheduled closing time, local media reported.A bystander’s video broadcast by local media showed the crowded club at the moment gunshots rang out, followed by the sound of people screaming in the dark.”We are still gathering facts, but it is clear that we need to have a comprehensive enforcement strategy in place that helps take the violent threats off the streets,” Stodola said in a statement.
