According to reports, this incident occurred on Friday, June 21, in the city of Fordyce, approximately 100 kilometres south of Little Rock, the capital of Arkansas.

Mike Hagar, the director of the Arkansas State Police, stated that the shooter was severely injured after being shot by police officers.

This incident comes amid an unprecedented rise in gun violence in the United States, with public places such as schools, shopping centers, churches, and street festivals increasingly becoming targets of attacks.
