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.

You dipsticks who want to take away the guns of upstanding citizens, while leaving only the thugs with them really need to cogitate on the matter. Nothing short of a massive increase in available jail/prison beds, sterilization of the thugs and their breeding partners, or some other admittedly draconian measure is going to measurably help to solve the rampant thug outbreak. While there are isolated incidents of the general population using weapons to a bad end, it is clear that overwhelmingly the thugs commit most of the crimes with firearms. The earth's population is increasing by 1 billion people every 12 years or so. Fix that. Offer free sterilizarions - hell - pay them to get sterilized. There cannot be enough jobs created to keep up with the rampant breeding, especially of the lower economic classes. And the thugs do need a way to get theirs. Some of them might actually turn away from thuggery were there more opportunity. With less breeding we may possibly make it as a planet.
