Police believe “multiple shooters” were involved in a gunfight that left at least 17 people injured at a nightclub in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Officers said via Twitter that all the victims at the Power Ultra Lounge are alive and one who was previously listed in critical condition is now stable.
#UPDATE as of now ALL 17 confirmed shooting victims are alive. We will provide additional updates as needed.

About a half-minute into a break in the raucous concert, several bursts of gunfire rang out — more than 24 shots in an 11-second period.
Themelaninpot said: “Shooting in #littlerock #arkansas this is outrageous. Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone there.
“If you know of anyone there please check on them. We have to save our state because this is getting out of hand.”
Not all of the 17 clubbers who were injured were shot – a number of people were trampled as people rushed away from the shooter, according to officers.
“One is too many. Seventeen is very alarming and certainly disturbing,” Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner told reporters.
He said there was “some sort of dispute broke out between people inside” the club and that there are “probably multiple shooting suspects”.
Police are continuing to investigate but say they do not “believe this incident was an active shooter or terror related incident”.
The club’s Facebook page promoted Friday night’s show with a poster depicting a man pointing what appears to be a gun at the camera.
A call to a number listed for Finese 2Tymes’ booking agent wasn’t immediately returned early Saturday.
