A gun­man opened fire at a Fordyce, Arkansas gro­cery store on Fri­day, leav­ing three peo­ple dead and eleven injured. Among the injured were the sus­pect and two law enforce­ment offi­cers, whose wounds are not con­sid­ered life-threat­en­ing. The remain­ing vic­tims’ con­di­tions range from seri­ous to critical.

Iden­ti­fied as 44-year-old Travis Posey, the sus­pect faces three counts of first-degree mur­der. The shoot­ing unfold­ed around 11:30 AM at the Mad Butch­er store.

The tragedy has sparked out­rage and renewed calls for stricter gun con­trol mea­sures in Arkansas, which has some of the nation’s most relaxed gun laws. The state boasts the high­est gun death rates and ranks low­est in gun safe­ty regulations.

This hor­rif­ic event serves as a stark reminder of the gun vio­lence epi­dem­ic plagu­ing Arkansas and the US. Law­mak­ers now face mount­ing pres­sure to enact stricter gun con­trol laws to pre­vent future tragedies.
