Two of the injured were said to be in critical condition following the attack in Little Rock on Saturday. "Some sort of dispute broke out between people inside", Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner told reporters on Saturday.
Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola took to Facebook to address the incident and call for everyone to help in restoring safety and security within the city.
The shooting, that last 11 seconds and set patrons screaming and running for the exits, capped a violent week in Arkansas' largest city. Buckner said police had not yet spoken with the rapper, who he said has outstanding warrants in the state.
Shots rang out at the Power Ultra Lounge on 220 W. 6th St, Little Rock, Arkansas. Federal agents arrestedHampton and the other man, 25-year-old Kentrell Gwynn, at the Side Effects night club after receiving information Hampton would be in Birmingham.
Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson has released a statement on the shooting, expressing his solidarity with the shootingvictims and their families and thanking the first responders for their work. Every few days it seems a high-profile shooting dominates the news. The first estimates said that there were 17 shootingvictims, but later reports are now confirming that the number is actually 25.
The Mayor of Little Rock announced on Saturday the nightclub had been shutdown after the incident, and that all 28 people were expected to survive.
The shooting follows a week of multiple drive-by shootings in the capital city, though there's no indication the events are linked. "This is, I guess, a blip on the map that we certainly didn't need considering the history that we've had over the past week", Chief Buckner said.
The state's Alcoholic Beverage Control officials moved to immediately suspend the club's alcohol license on potential charges of disorderly conduct, allowing possession of weapons on the premises, and "failure to be a good neighbor".
A chilling video of the incident posted by a witness inside the club shows a series of gunshots ringing out moments after a break in the performance.
