RIP Bill Gwatney

The chairman of the Arkansas Democratic Party has died after being shot earlier today by a gunman who forced his way into the party's headquarters.
The suspected gunman was shot during a police chase and died, the Associated Press news agency reports.

…The authorities have not yet named the suspected gunman, said to be a 51-year-old man, and the motive for the shooting remains unclear.
I'll post an update with more information if and when it becomes available.
