Shooting at Arkansas car show kills at least 1, wounds 20, including children

At least one person is killed and 20 people wounded, including children, in a shooting outside a car show in southeast Arkansas, local police say.

Keith Finch, chief of police in the town of Dumas, provides the increased number of casualties but says it isn’t immediately clear how many kids had been hurt.

One person is in custody, although there may have been multiple shooters, Finch tells reporters.

State troopers were dispatched to Dumas, located about 90 miles (144 kilometers) south of Little Rock, following a report of gunfire outside a local business where the car show was underway, Arkansas State Police spokesperson Bill Sadler says.

The car show is an annual community event held each spring to raise funds for scholarships and school supplies, according to the Delta Neighborhood Empowerment Youth Organization, which put on the event.

Additional information, including conditions of the wounded, isn’t immediately available.
