LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Little Rock's police chief says investigators believe a shooting at a nightclub where 28 people were injured may be gang-related.

Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner says the shooting early Saturday appears to have stemmed from disputes among local groups.

All of the victims are expected to survive the shooting early Saturday at the Power Ultra Lounge. Police believe multiple people fired shots. Twenty-five people suffered gunshot wounds, and three others were injured while trying to flee. Police say two people are in critical condition.

The shooting capped a violent week in Arkansas' largest city. Authorities said the nightclub shooting may be connected to a dozen drive-by shootings over the previous nine days.

The city's mayor says the nightclub will be shut down.
