(CNN) - The chairman of the Arkansas Democratic Party died Wednesday, hours after a shooting at the party's headquarters, police said.
Chairman Bill Gwatney died at 3:59 Wednesday afternoon after a gunman entered his Little Rock office and shot him several times in the upper body, Little Rock Police Lt. Terry Hastings said.
Authorities confirmed the news shortly after former President Clinton and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton released a statement expressing their condolences.
of course, it's arkansas
Oh my God! I wish the person that was shot a full and speedy recovery.
God, please protect all of the candidates and their families. Thank you!
Wow...republican trash...trailor park trash...
Obama will claim it's race related and start playing his Ace in the Hole again...
Then he will follow more of McCain's ideas in an apparent "Policy Shift"...
The solution is obviously to get more guns in the hands of more people. We will all be safer then.
Unfortunately, I think this is just the beginning. Senator Obama and the DNC have upset millions....some of which don't have all cylinders working. My best wishes go to the DNC Arkansas Chairman.
was it a republican who did the shooting?
This is an example of what this country has become under the John McCain and the right winged republican party. Freedoms are challenged and people feel it is OK to attack a party headquarters in support of a party that encourages war and violence in its words.
I wish the person that was shot a full and speedy recovery.
God, please protect all of the candidates and their families
WHO did it? (name age affiliation) WHY did they do it? (cause motivation intent) You should not be allowed to post an article that is 2 sentences long. A little bit of information can be quite dangerous
Not surprised, The DNC will be responsible for this country burning to the ground. You cannot disenfranchise 18 million people and not be expected to pay the consequenses.
Lord protect and bring this person back to full recovery.
Party Partisanship goes out the window when someone's life is put in danger. It's not about "Senator Obama and the DNC have upset millions". I'm a Republican and this isn't the time for party partisanship. I wish the person that was shot a full speedy recovery. God bless them and their families.
Wait until it get's closer to November, that's when a lot of the horrible people are going to start coming out of their gutters. Just Horrible.
Why should the good people have to suffer, or be threatened because of the people who were brought up by corrutive upbringings and hateful teachings of their obvious worthless parents.
cnn, could you please have more infor before you post stories. Was the man a democrat?
was he shooting at any particular person or a whole group of people? Please investigate before rushing to make the next news cycle.
Good news is that's one less vote for McCain.
maybe we shou.ld wait for the facts before mudslinging
Excuse me Robert, what do you mean Senator Obama has upset millions. Try the Clintons, staying in the race in spite of the fact that Hillary could not win it MATHEMATICALLY.
Perhaps all of your cylinders aren't working?
This is so sad. Campaigns that sew hate and fear do nothing but provide validation for nutts to carry out stupid acts.
Sounds like Bill and Hillary Country. They just won't play nicely.
How can you make claims like "of course, its Arkansas"? Are you serious? How dare you make those remarks. I live in Little Rock and that is highly offensive. It doenst matter WHERE it was, an innocent man was shot!
This is so sad. Campaigns that spew hate and fear do nothing but provide validation for nutts to carry out stupid, mindless acts.
May god bless all the candidates and keep them safe.
Robert, are you blaming Obama for some wack job shooting up a party head quarters? Seriously...
and the shooter isnt in custody, according to our local news, he was shot and killed after a short car chase.
Wow, you people how no idea who shot him and what his motives were, much less if it was politically motivated.
Sick and Tired:
So we should disenfranchise the 18Million that didn't agree with you then it will be okay right?
