Police say two people were injured in an overnight shooting at a Little Rock Waffle House.

Little Rock Police Department Sgt. Cassandra Davis said it happened shortly before 3 a.m. at the restaurant at 201 N. Shackleford Road.

Police said in a statement that the unidentified gunman got into an argument with another patron before going outside and getting a gun.

"The suspect then shot the his intended victim and an additional round struck the clerk," Lt. Sidney Allen wrote in the email. "It is unknown if the victim knows the suspect."

The identities of the victims weren't immediately released, but police described their conditions as appearing non-life threatening.

It wasn't clear what started the argument.

Allen said no arrests have been made.

There were no signs of the shooting later Monday morning except that the Waffle House, which is usually open 24 hours a day, was closed. An employee said it would reopen by lunch, but he said all other questions about the shooting would have to go to the chain's corporate office.

A CCP does not give anyone the right to shoot someone in an argument. So why ask?

I'm quite that wasn't the point of his question.

If he DID have a CCP, he won't have one any more.
If he DIDN'T have a CCP, that didn't stop him.
So as long as bad guys like him are out there, the good guys could use a CCP.

Crime rate is really plunging with the looser gun laws. It's the answer to everything. Everybody should get one.... Or maybe a hundred.

My guess is no CCP, and a non-NRA member. Just another loose cannon roaming our streets who has no self control or fear of the law.

"Did they burnt his toast?" that is the most stupid comment. The point is everyone is gun toting these days and there are too many people getting hurt and/or killed! What is happening to this world? Benton is getting just as bad but I said long ago that give a few years and it would be just one straight stretch from Benton to Little Rock. And it is happening.

reason,with the exception of the high cap ban that was proven to not have worked gun laws are tighter than they have ever been.its because of liberals like yourself who would rather blame those mean ole guns than punish criminals that crime rates are on the rise.
