Four Killed, Five wounded in Mass Shooting at Kansas Bar

Four people were killed and five others wounded after two suspects entered a bar and opened fire in Kansas City, Kansas, early Sunday.

Authorities were searching on Sunday for the two gunmen, said Officer Thomas Tomasic, a police spokesman. Police are also reviewing surveillance video from inside the bar.

He added the two men had apparently gotten into some sort of disagreement with people inside Tequila KC Bar, left, then returned with handguns.

Around 40 people were inside the small bar when gunfire erupted around 1:30am, Tomasic said. The gunfire sent people running for the exits, with the injured leaving trails of blood as they fled.

The four people who died were all Hispanic males, who ranged in age from mid-20s to late-50s, Tomasic said. Authorities did not identify them further.

Five others were taken to local hospitals and in stable condition.

Tequila KC is a private club, which meant that having a membership or being the guest of a member was required for entry, according to Tomasic.

All four men who were killed were Hispanic, but Tomasic said authorities do not believe the shooting was racially motivated. The shooting happened in a neighbourhood with a large Hispanic population.
