— Authorities say five people were shot in an incident at a business on Wright Avenue in Little Rock early Tuesday morning, including a 16-year-old girl who was listed in critical but stable condition.

Police initially said all five of the victims were juveniles. But a police report released later Tuesday showed two of the victims were 16 and 17 and the others were 19, 19 and 20.

Little Rock Police Department Sgt. Cassandra Davis said officers were called to Real Rock Ryders at 2220 Wright Ave. shortly after midnight to investigate a reported shooting.

"Upon officers arrival [police] observed multiple people running from the business screaming," Davis wrote in an email.

Police located one victim who had a gunshot wound to her head near her ear, another who had been shot in a finger and a third with a gunshot wound to the lower right leg.

It was later determined two other gunshot victims had already been taken to the hospital in private vehicles: one who was shot in the left knee and a 16-year-old girl who was shot in the left chest and arm. A sixth victim, a 16-year-old girl, was also taken to the hospital after a car ran over her foot at the scene, police said.

One of the shooting victims was treated on scene and released and two others were treated in the emergency room and released, police said. The girl who was shot in the chest underwent surgery and was listed in critical but stable condition, Davis wrote.

A website for Real Rock Ryders describes it as a "sportsbike motorcycle club."

No arrests have been made. Police say a group including the shooter or shooters may have left in a green Cadillac, a white Cadillac with a red top and a white Crown Victoria.

@bclem: The victims were probably "....................." too -- which in some ways makes it even worse (though ALL human life is too precious to waste this way).
