Kansas City police responded to a report of a shooting at Tequila KC Bar around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday. They found four people shot dead inside. The five wounded people were transported to a hospital in stable condition.
Police are searching for two suspects. No arrests have been made in the case and a motive has not yet been established. They believe the suspects may have been to the bar before and do not believe the shooting was racially motivated, WDAF-TV reported.
Thomas Tomasic, a spokesman for the Kansas City Police Department, told reporters Sunday that investigators determined a handgun was used in the attack after finding handgun shells at the scene.
Detectives are reviewing surveillance footage from inside the bar, reported local NBC affiliate KSHB-TV.
Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also responded to the shooting.
Tequila KC Bar, located in the Riverview neighborhood of Kansas City, is a private members-only bar, reported KSHB-TV.
“My prayers are with the families of the victims and also prayers for the assailants,” Kansas City Mayor David Alvey told reporters Sunday. “It’s sad for all those involved.”
