2 killed, 5 injured in Arkansas shooting

Two people were killed and five were wounded in a shooting in Arkansas early Sunday morning, local police announced. The suspected shooter also died in the incident.

A statement from the Jonesboro Police Department said the shooting took place at a private party and that the two individuals who were killed, one female and one male, were both known by the shooter.

Three of the five individuals injured in the shooting did not have any known connection to the suspected shooter. One person injured, a female victim, did know the shooter.

Police did not specify whether the fifth victim — who police only announced was undergoing treatment in an updated announcement Sunday afternoon — had any known connection to the suspect.

Police said there is no ongoing threat to the community, but that the investigation was ongoing.
