The individual was arrested as he was being released from a Dumas hospital Wednesday morning on charges of first-degree battery and aggravated assault, Arkansas State Police said in a statement. It was unclear why the individual was hospitalized and whether he had an attorney who would comment.
Authorities previously indicated they were searching for two suspects in addition to one person who officials said Sunday had been taken into custody by the Dumas Police Department on unrelated charges. That person has since been released on bond, Arkansas State Police told CNN on Wednesday, emphasizing the charges are not connected to the shooting.
Arkansas State Police initially said 28 people had been wounded, but adjusted the figure in a Facebook post on Monday. "The discrepancy appears to be attributed to one patient admitted locally and later transferred to another hospital."
Five children between the ages of 19 months and 11 years old were among the wounded, the agency said Monday.
At a news conference Sunday afternoon, police identified the person killed as 23-year-old Cameron Shaffer of Jacksonville, Arkansas. There was no indication Shaffer was involved in the act of shooting itself, they said.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and also with all the families and our shooting victims as a result of this incident," Col. Bill Bryant of Arkansas State Police told reporters.
Police believe there was "no mass shooting intended," with the incident triggered by two individuals who exchanged fire around 7 p.m. CT (8 p.m. ET) Saturday at the community car show.
"It's shocking," he said. "We have a small community, a farming community in Dumas of 5,000 people and then we have an incident of multi-victims ... You don't expect that from small-town Arkansas."
Gov. Asa Hutchinson spoke out Sunday on Twitter, saying the incident "represents a total disregard of the value of life."
"As the investigation continues, I will examine details to see if there are any steps that could have been taken to prevent this type of tragedy," Hutchinson said in the statement.
Earlier Sunday, state police said 24 people had been wounded in the incident, while Arkansas Children's Hospital said it had treated six victims aged under 18.
The hospital said the children's wounds were non-life-threatening and most of them had been released from the hospital following treatment.
"Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock received six patients under 18 with gun shot wounds from the incident, none fatal. Most of the patients have been treated and released," Hilary DeMillo, media relations manager for the hospital, told CNN in an email.
Bryant told the news conference five children -- aged 11, 9, 8, 23 months and 19 months -- were transported to Arkansas Children's Hospital after the incident and that police were working to verify whether a sixth child was involved. Five victims had since been released from the hospital, he said.
Family members identified three of the five children Monday. Angelo Ussery Sr. told CNN his 1-year-old son, Angelo Ussery Jr., was shot in the leg while at the show with his mother.
"When she called me she was in an uproar and I just broke down," Ussery said. "I just had to find a way to get to this hospital I never been to before. "When I saw the wound, I couldn't believe. He had a hole in his leg and they had to fly him to the children's hospital."
The child is expected to make a full recovery, his father said.
Frankie Spicer Sr. had a similar scare when friends began reaching out to him to let him know there was a shooting at the car show where his mother and two children were.
"I kept calling my mother but a stranger picked up and told me he didn't know who the phone belonged to but there was a woman and a child laid out on the floor," Spicer said.
Spicer told CNN his 11-year-old son, Frankie Spicer Jr., was shot in the hand and his 8-year-old daughter, Aaliyah Spicer, was shot in the leg while waiting in line for funnel cake. His mother, Felecia Kimble, was shot in the stomach.
"My daughter told me there were people stepping over them and my son told me he got up and ran to get help," he said. "He ran to police and told them my mom and his little sister were shot."
Spicer said police transported them to a local hospital. His family is expected to make a full recovery, he said.
Arkansas State Police said in an earlier news release Sunday that special agents from its Criminal Investigation Division had interviewed victims and witnesses overnight. Investigators secured the scene, which sits along US Highway 65 as it goes through the center of Dumas, it said.
The car show was hosted by the Hood-Nic Foundation and Delta Neighborhood Empowerment Organization, a group providing educational programs and support for Dumas-area youth, according to their website. Dumas is about 80 miles southeast of Little Rock.
According to Delta N.E.Y.O website, the annual Hood-Nic, (Neighborhood Picnic) of which the car show has been a part for 16 years, takes place annually over spring break weekend to raise funds for "scholarships, school supplies, and more to deserving individuals."
"We are heartbroken and in shock at what took place during tonight's car show," the Hood-Nic Foundation said in a Facebook post Saturday night.
"The purpose of Hood-Nic has always been to bring the community together," the post said. "This senseless violence needs to end. Sending our prayers."

CNN's Dakin Andone, Caroll Alvarado and Susannah Cullinane contributed to this report.

Dumas, Arkansas — One man was killed and 27 people were wounded when two people got into a gunfight during a car show that's part of an annual community event in a small southeast Arkansas town, authorities said Sunday.

A person who left the scene of the Saturday evening shooting has been arrested on unrelated charges and is being questioned about the shooting in Dumas, a city of about 4,000 located about 90 miles (144 kilometers) southeast of Little Rock, Arkansas State Police Col. Bill Bryant said.

"All we know at this time, there was two individuals that got in a gunfight," Bryant said at a Sunday afternoon news conference.

He said several children were among the wounded, including two under the age of 2.

The car show is part of a community event held each spring called Hood-Nic, which is short for neighborhood picnic. The Hood-Nic Foundation says on its website that its mission is to "rebuild, reunite, and respond to the needs of the youth in our communities."

The event, which helps raise funds for scholarships and school supplies, also included a bonfire, a basketball tournament, musical performances, a teen party and a balloon release.

"The purpose of Hood-Nic has always been to bring the community together," the foundation said on its Facebook page. "This senseless violence needs to end."

"It's always been a family-friendly event with a message of non-violence," said Kris Love-Keys, the foundation's chief development officer.

Cameron Shaffer, 23, of Jacksonville, Arkansas, was killed in the gunfire, Bryant said. He said authorities have no indication that he was involved in the gunfight.

Earlier in the day, Gov. Asa Hutchinson said on Twitter that one of the two suspects had been arrested and was being held on unrelated charges. But state police later would only say the person who was arrested was being questioned.

"As the investigation continues I will examine details to see if there are any steps that could have been taken to prevent this type of tragedy," Hutchinson said.

Six people under the age of 18 who were wounded by gunfire were taken to Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock, according to a spokeswoman. Most had been released as of Sunday afternoon.

Wallace McGehee, the car show's organizer, told KARK that that when the bullets started flying, he began "running, ducking, getting down, trying to get kids out of the way."

Candace McKinzie, who helped organize the event, told The New York Times that the gunfire seemed to come out of nowhere.

"You went from laughing and talking and eating and everything to random firing," she said.

McKinzie said people started running and tripping over one another and older people were falling.

Those who were shot include McKinzie's cousin and sister. She said both were expected to recover.

Chris Jones, a Democrat running for Arkansas governor, tweeted that he was at the event earlier Saturday, registering voters and enjoying "a positive family atmosphere."

"I am deeply saddened (and honestly angered) by this tragedy," Jones said in a statement.

One person was killed and 24 wounded when gunfire erupted during a car show that is part of an annual community event in a small south-east Arkansas town, authorities said on Sunday.

At least six children were among those wounded.

Police had not said what led to the Saturday night shooting in Dumas, but Governor Asa Hutchinson said on Twitter that there were two suspects, one of whom had been arrested and was being held on unrelated charges.

“As the investigation continues I will examine details to see if there are any steps that could have been taken to prevent this type of tragedy,” Hutchinson said.

Dumas is a city of about 4,000 about 90 miles south of Little Rock. The car show is part of a community event held each spring called Hood-Nic, which is short for neighborhood picnic.

The Hood-Nic Foundation says on its website that its mission is to “rebuild, reunite, and respond to the needs of the youth in our communities”.

The event, which helps raise funds for scholarships and school supplies, also included a bonfire, a basketball tournament, musical performances, a teen party and a balloon release.

“The purpose of Hood-Nic has always been to bring the community together,” the foundation said on its Facebook page. “This senseless violence needs to end.”

Six children were taken to Arkansas children’s hospital in Little Rock, according to a spokeswoman. Most had been released by Sunday afternoon.

Messages left at a hospital in Dumas and another in nearby McGehee were not immediately returned.

Wallace McGehee, the car show organizer, expressed condolences to the victims’ families and the community.

“For something like this to happen, it’s a tragedy,” McGehee told KATV. “We did this here for 16 years without a problem.”

Chris Jones, a Democrat running for Arkansas governor, tweeted that he was at the event earlier on Saturday, registering voters and enjoying “a positive family atmosphere”.

“I am deeply saddened (and honestly angered) by this tragedy,” Jones said in a statement.

Hutchinson said the man who was arrested was from Jacksonville, just north-east of Little Rock.

Arkansas Car Show Shooting Leaves 1 Dead and 27 Wounded ...

20-03-2022

DUMAS, Ark. — A community event and car show in a small Arkansas farming community became a scene of horror on Saturday night, as two people engaged in a gunfight and sprayed the crowd with bullets, killing one bystander and injuring 27 other people, including six children.

Survivors said the violence erupted with a startling suddenness. “You went from laughing and talking and eating and everything to random firing,” said Candace McKinzie, 26, one of the organizers of the event. Ms. McKinzie said that she was eating a funnel cake at a booth when she heard a series of pops, and soon saw a stampede of people running and tripping over one another, including “elderly people falling, trying to hide under tables.”

Saturday’s incident was the largest mass shooting event in the United States in 2022 so far, according to the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit data collection organization. It came on a particularly bloody weekend in the region: In Dallas, 10 people were injured and one shot in the head, during a shooting on Saturday night, according to a local TV station.

Around the same time in Austin, four people were injured in a shooting in the vicinity of the city’s Sixth Street entertainment district on the last weekend of South by Southwest, Austin’s famous arts and technology conference.

The shooting in Dumas, a city of 4,000 people about 90 miles southeast of Little Rock, ruined a beloved local event called Hood-Nic, for neighborhood picnic, hosted by a foundation that offers tutoring, backpacks and scholarships to first-time college students, according to its website. The big outdoor party had been canceled two years running because of the coronavirus pandemic, and Saturday’s event was supposed to represent a much-needed return to normal.

At a news conference on Sunday afternoon, police did not give details about the reasons the suspects began fighting, or their relationship to each other. Col. Bill Bryant, director of the Arkansas State Police, said that both men remained at large.

“It’s shocking,” he said, adding, “You don’t expect that from small-town Arkansas.”

Dumas is the largest city in Desha County, a swath of flat, fertile agricultural land that hugs the Mississippi River in Arkansas’s Delta region. According to U.S. Census figures, per capita income in the county is just over ,000, with nearly 23 percent of county residents living in poverty.

The Hood-Nic event took place in the parking lot of a branch of Fred’s, a regional discount retail chain that declared bankruptcy and closed all of its stores in 2019.

Detrich Elliott, 42, the owner of an online radio station in Little Rock, served as a host of the event and said that things had gone smoothly for much of the day, with no indication of tension. The sun was shining. A band played R&B music. Rappers performed onstage, preachers issued prayers, and politicians sought votes. People set up lawn chairs in front of the stage, and people of all ages, including many children, milled around amid food trucks and custom cars that were set to be the focus of a popularity contest.

Sometime after 6 p.m., the people who had gathered near the stage were asked to make room for the parade of cars. It was right around that moment that Mr. Elliott, who was onstage, heard the shooting to the right of him, coming from behind some food trucks.

He heard what seemed like 12 or 15 shots, he said, but could not make out the shooters. “I seen the after effects of people laying on the ground,” Mr. Elliott said. “I seen a guy laying on the ground and some people helping that guy into a car — maybe a police car.”

Voices rang out, he said, saying, “There’s somebody over there hurt. There’s somebody over here hurt.”

Ms. McKinzie, one of the organizers, said she dropped her food, ran toward a table and heard her boyfriend, Josh Lane, scream: “Get down!”

Her brother flipped a booth on its side and shielded children behind it, she said.

Her cousin and sister were shot amid the mayhem. Both had surgery on Sunday and were expected to fully recover, she said.

Jessica Bass, a Dumas resident, said she believed she saw the start of the altercation, as one man punched another man. The man who was punched, she said, turned and pulled out a handgun and shot the other man in the chest. Her account has not been verified by law enforcement.

Ms. Bass said that a friend who was with her, Cory Everett, was shot twice in the leg, and she recounted how she drove him to Delta Memorial hospital just down the road. There were still blood stains in the back seat of Ms. Bass’s car on Sunday as she talked to a reporter. She said she did not know Mr. Everett’s condition.

Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock treated six patients under the age of 18 who had gunshot wounds, said Hilary DeMillo, a hospital spokeswoman. Most of the patients were treated and released by late Sunday morning. Kris Love-Keys, the chief development officer for the Hood-Nic Foundation, a local nonprofit that organized the car show, said that the youngest child hurt was 1 year old, the oldest 11.

Col. Bryant identified the dead victim as Cameron Shaffer, 23, of Jackson, Ark. He said local police arrested one person who left the scene and “fit the general description” of one of the suspects. But the arrest, Col. Bryant said, was on charges unrelated to the shooting.

Mr. Lane, an officer for the Pine Bluff (Ark.) Police Department who was in Dumas to spend time with family, said he performed chest compressions on a man who had been shot in his armpit and stomach. He was unsure of the man’s condition on Sunday.

Stephanie Fisher, who grew up in Dumas but now lives in Texas, returns to Dumas for the Hood-Nic event every year. She was there with family on Saturday evening when the shooting started. Her grandson, Frankie Spicer, 11, was shot in his right hand; his half-sister, Aaliyah Spicer, was shot in the left calf. The children’s other grandmother was shot in the stomach.

All three were rushed to Delta Memorial Hospital in Dumas and then transferred to medical centers in Little Rock.

The Hood-Nic group, which promotes nonviolence, said on Facebook that it was “heartbroken and in shock” at the shooting. Wallace McGehee, the car show’s organizer, told television station KARK on Saturday night during the shooting that he was running and trying to “get kids out of the way.”

“When bullets start flying, they don’t” have a name on it, he said.

At a prayer vigil on Sunday afternoon, Isierene Spinks, the school nurse at Dumas Elementary School, said she went to Delta Memorial Hospital after receiving a phone call that the hospital was short staffed. She said she helped treat 10 to 12 people, four of whom she knew personally.

“We are all just so devastated,” she said.

Shooting At Arkansas Car Show Leaves 1 Dead, 27 Wounded

20-03-2022

A total of 28 people were shot, one fatally, after two people “got into a gunfight” at a car show in southeast Arkansas on Saturday, authorities said Sunday.

One person has been taken into custody after gunfire “swept through a crowd” at the event in Dumas shortly after 7 p.m. A search is ongoing for two people who are believed to have been the source of the gunfire, Arkansas State Police and Dumas Police said at a joint press conference late Sunday afternoon.

“It was two individuals who got in a gunfight and exchanged gunfire and unfortunately we had [multiple] victims of the shooting incident,” Arkansas State Police Colonel Bill Bryant said at the press conference that updated the number of wounded victims from the previous number of 24.

The individual arrested, who was not immediately identified, was being held Sunday on unrelated charges, Bryant said.

Six of the shooting victims were under the age of 18 and taken to Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock, roughly 85 miles northwest of Dumas, for treatment. Most of the victims have been treated and released, a hospital spokesperson told HuffPost Sunday afternoon.

The one fatality was identified Sunday as 23-year-old Cameron Shaffer from Jacksonville, Arkansas.

Bryant said the violence rocked the area, which he described as a small, farming community of roughly 5,000 people.

“You just don’t expect that from small-town Arkansas,” he said.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) said in a statement on Twitter that he will work to see if “there are any steps that could have been taken to prevent this type of tragedy.”

Wallace McGehee, who organized the event, teared up Saturday while expressing his condolences to those impacted by the gun violence.

One suspect is in custody - but cops are still hunting for more possible shooters who may have fled the scene.

Cameron Shaffer, 23, from of Jacksonville, was killed in the terrifying gunfight that took place while a band was performing on stage.

Authorities believe that there is no indication that Shaffer was involved in the confrontation that resulted in the shooting.

Cops confirmed an 11-year-old, a nine-year-old, an eight-year-old, a 23-month-old, and a 19-month-old were among the injured.

The incident occurred around 7.25pm local time at the Hood-Nic event, Arkansas State Police confirmed to The US Sun.

Desha County Emergency Management said the shooting occurred in the parking lot of the Mad Butcher, located on US-165.

Police said they are looking into the possibility of multiple shooters.

A number of victims were allegedly taken to Delta Memorial.

Additional victims were taken to McGehee Hospital, and one child was brought to Arkansas Children's Hospital.

At least two victims have been airlifted from the parking lot where the shooting occurred.

An investigator tending to the scene of the crime told KARK 4 this incident did not appear to be a “mass shooter situation.”

"The bottom line on this is individuals got into a gunfight," said Arkansas State Police Director Col Bill Bryant in a press conference Sunday.

Video footage from a witness, but posted by McCoy, shows crowds gathering outside of Delta Hospital.

An additional video posted by witnesses shows ambulances rushing to the scene.

Multiple sirens can be heard in the background.

One video shows dozens of people gathered around cars and trucks in a parking lot.

One suspect is in custody - but cops are still hunting for more possible shooters who may have fled the scene.

Cameron Shaffer, 23, from of Jacksonville, was killed in the terrifying gunfight that took place while a band was performing on stage.

Authorities believe that there is no indication that Shaffer was involved in the confrontation that resulted in the shooting.

Cops confirmed an 11-year-old, a nine-year-old, an eight-year-old, a 23-month-old, and a 19-month-old were among the injured.

The incident occurred around 7.25pm local time at the Hood-Nic event, Arkansas State Police confirmed to The US Sun.

Desha County Emergency Management said the shooting occurred in the parking lot of the Mad Butcher, located on US-165.

Police said they are looking into the possibility of multiple shooters.

A number of victims were allegedly taken to Delta Memorial.

Additional victims were taken to McGehee Hospital, and one child was brought to Arkansas Children's Hospital.

At least two victims have been airlifted from the parking lot where the shooting occurred.
