According to reports from the scene, there was a fight at the bar earlier in the night and at least one person involve in that fight left the bar and returned with a firearm.
At 1:27 a.m. local time, at least one shooter, a Hispanic male, entered the private, members-only Tequila KC bar and started shooting, striking nine people and killing at four Hispanic men. The names of the victims have not yet been released, nor have the names of any potential suspects.
Juan Ramirez of Kansas City, Kan., told reporters that his 29-year-old nephew was among the victims, adding that he left behind a six-year-old son and a 4-year-old daughter. “We’re just in shock and disbelief,” he said. “I don’t wish this upon anybody.” . . .
Police spokesman Thomas Tomasic told reporters the handgun shells had been found at the scene, adding, “Detectives are here and are looking at any surveillance. This is definitely one of those that we’re going to do everything very slowly, very methodically and correctly.” (Read more from “Weekend Bar Shooting Leaves 4 Dead, Several Injured (VIDEO)” HERE)
