WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Ten people were injured in a shooting at a car show in the US state of Arkansas, the state police said.
"Preliminary information provided to ASP [Arkansas State Police] is that as many as 10 people had been wounded by gunfire," the police said in a statement, as quoted by NBC on Saturday.
The shooting occurred on Saturday night, at around 07:25 p.m. local time (00:25 GMT on Sunday) in the city of Dumas, located in Arkansas’ Desha County. Highway patrol officers, troopers and investigators were dispatched to a business where the car show was taking place, the police said.
KARK-TV reported that, according to the authorities on the scene, at least one person died as a result of the shooting. There are also children among the victims, investigators said as cited by virtual channel 4, specifying that this does not appear to be a mass shooter situation.

KARK-TV cited the Desha County Office of Emergency Management as saying that there were two different incidents that occurred in Dumas on Saturday night: a high-speed pursuit that ended in a head-on crash, and an incident in a parking lot that occurred during the car show.

There was no immediate information on possible suspects or the condition of the injured.

According to KARK-TV, one injured child was transported to the Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
