DUMAS, Ark. (AP) — Authorities say one man was killed and 27 people were wounded when two people got into a gunfight during a car show that's part of an annual community event in a small southeast Arkansas town.

Arkansas State Police Col. Bill Bryant said Sunday that a person who left the scene of the Saturday evening shooting has been arrested on unrelated charges and is being questioned about the shooting in Dumas, a city of about 4,000 located about 90 miles southeast of Little Rock.

The car show is part of a community event held each spring called Hood-Nic, which is short for neighborhood picnic.
