Four people were killed and 5 wounded after a suspect entered a bar in Kansas City, Kansas, early Sunday and started shooting. Police responded to the incident overnight at Tequila KC on 10th Street and Central Avenue after receiving the first 911 call at about 1:27 a.m. Authorities believe that there might be two suspects who entered the bar and began shooting based on witness accounts. Police are also reviewing surveillance video from inside the bar. The four people who died were all Hispanic males, who ranged in age from mid-20s to late-50s.
Tequila KC is a private club, which meant that having a membership or being the guest of a member was required for entry. Police said they had no reason to believe the shooting was racially motivated and that it appeared to be an isolated incident, possibly related to a disturbance that occurred earlier in the bar.
