The shooting happened at the Power Ultra Lounge in Little Rock during a concert by the artist Finese2Tymes.

One person previously listed in critical condition is now stable, and other injuries were minor.
The club has two levels, the first one featuring the restaurant and the second level is the lounge, according to a description on its site.
Statement from Gov. Asa Hutchinson:
"First and foremost, my thoughts are with the victims and their families this morning, and the First Lady and I are praying for their quick recovery. I also want to thank the first responders who no doubt saved lives with their quick action.
"Little Rock's crime problem appears to be intensifying. Every few days it seems a high profile shooting dominates the news, culminating with this morning's event. I have spoken this morning with Mayor Stodola and I have offered both my heart felt concern over this senseless violent tragedy and state assets as needed to address the continued threat of violence in our community.
“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. The state will participate and bring assets to the table to support local law enforcement efforts."
Statement from U.S. Senator John Boozman:
“Cathy and I send our prayers to the victims of this tragic violence. I continue to stand and support law enforcement to fight this ongoing reckless violence in our capital city.”
Facebook statement from the performing artist, Finese2Tymes:
"Prayers go to the innocent people and their family that came out to support me last night in Little Rock, Ark. The violence is not for the club people. We all come with one motive at the end of the day, and that's to have fun. Not to be hurt. So again, I send my condolences to the people who were hurt."
