Shooting at Arkansas auto show leaves at least one dead, 20 injured, including children

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

Dumas City Police Chief Keith Finch provides the increased number of casualties, but says it’s not immediately clear how many children were injured.

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

State troopers were dispatched to Dumas, located about 144 miles south of Little Rock, following a report of gunfire outside a local business where the auto show was ongoing, Arkansas State Police spokesman Bill Sadler said.

The auto show is an annual community event held each spring to raise money for scholarships and school supplies, according to the Delta Neighborhood Empowerment Youth Organization, which organized the event.

Additional information, including the conditions of the injured, is not immediately available.
