Police in Little Rock, Arkansas, say 25 people were shot inside a nightclub early Saturday—but all have survived, the AP reports. Details on what happened aren't clear, but police say the shooting appears to have been set off by a dispute inside the Power Lounge about 2:30am. "We do NOT believe this incident was an active shooter or terror related incident," said police in a tweet. More than 24 shots were fired in 11 seconds. In addition to the 25 people shot, three people suffered other injuries. One person initially listed in critical condition has been upgraded to stable, reports ABC News. None of the other injuries were believed to be life-threatening. (More Arkansas stories.)
