The shooting took place in Dumas, about 90 miles southeast of Little Rock, at about 7:30 p.m. local time, according to Arkansas State Police.

Keith Finch, Dumas’ chief of police, told ABC News that children were among those injured in the shooting, but did not have a specific number. Organizers for the event told ABC News that six children were injured but are “doing OK.”

At least 20 people were shot at a car show in Dumas, Ark., on Saturday, March 19, 2022.

Preliminary information suggests the shooting was the result of a gang-related fight that spilled into a public area and not a random act. Detectives are continuing their investigation, a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation told ABC News.

Finch said police have a person of interest in custody but continue to investigate whether more people may have been involved.

It’s unclear what caused the shooting or the conditions of many of those injured.
