Shooting outside Clinton Library unrelated to election: police
On Monday night, the Little Rock Police Department reported a shooting at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas, according to KATV.
The officers who showed up at the scene were initially unable to find a victim on-site but “were later able to locate a victim at a local hospital.”
Early reports suggested that the shooting had nothing to do with the 2016 Presidential election, however. According to CBS News, the motive appears to be related to a robbery.
