July 1, 2017
LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today released a statement following an overnight mass shooting at Power Ultra Lounge in Little Rock.
“My thoughts and prayers are with all 28 victims who were injured overnight at the Power Ultra Lounge in Little Rock, and I am grateful for the first responders who saved multiple lives,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Today, we all woke to the tragic news that this senseless act of violence occurred right in the heart of our capital city. As state and community leaders, it is our responsibility to encourage a civil, peaceful discourse and that violence can never be the solution to solve our differences. As the chief law enforcement officer, I stand ready to assist the Little Rock Police Department as they continue their investigation and we work together to reduce crime in our communities."
