LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Five young people were shot early Christmas morning during a party at a Little Rock motorcycle organization's clubhouse, leaving one person in critical condition.
Little Rock police spokesman Sgt. Cassandra Davis said the shooting broke out minutes after midnight at the Real Rock Ryders' building on Wright Avenue, where members were having a Christmas party. Davis said she didn't know what prompted the shooting, but said investigators were looking for three juveniles who are possible suspects.
A 16-year-old girl was shot in the left side of her chest and twice in her left arm. She was in critical but stable condition at Arkansas Children's Hospital, Davis said.
Davis said it was unclear how many people attended the party, but officers at the scene had described it as a "large crowd," she said. When police arrived, people were running from the building and screaming.
A 20-year-old female was shot in the head but was conscious and talking, according to the police report. Two 19-year-old male victims each sustained gunshot wounds to their legs. A 17-year-old male was treated at the scene for a gunshot to a finger.
A different 16-year-old wasn't hurt by gunfire, but by a car running over one of her feet when she tried to flee the scene.
A woman who answered the phone number listed as a contact for the club on its website said she was out of town and didn't know what happened. She wouldn't provide a phone number for someone who was at the shooting.
