Shooting at University of Central Arkansas

Just a couple of hours ago, a shooting incident occurred at the University of Central Arkansas (UCA) which left 2 students dead. Police arrived at the the scene within minutes but one student was already dead on the spot while the other died at Conway Regional Medical Center. A third person was reported to have had minor injuries and was released immediately after treatment.

According to UCA Campus Police, shots were fired around 9:19 pm, October 26, between the Snow Fine Arts Center and the Arkansas Hall. UCA Residence Halls and the UCA Student Center were immediately locked down, but the UCA campus itself is still open with UCAPD officers dispatched within the area. At the moment, entry to the campus is limited to residents and authorized personnel.

Police currently have a person of interest in custody but are allegedly looking for 3 suspects. Officials refuse to release the names of the victims until relatives have been properly notified.
