2 dead, 15 hurt in shooting outside Kansas City bar

Arriving in the chaotic aftermath, police found the bodies of a woman who was shot and killed in the vehicle park and a man who was believed to be the shooter. Police said the motive for the shooting was not immediately clear.

Police in Kansas City, Missouri, say at least one person is dead and upwards of a dozen people may have been injured in a shooting outside a bar. The suspect fired into a queue of people waiting to get into a bar, according to a police spokesperson.

"As the investigation unfolded at least 15 other victims arrived at area hospitals", Kansas City Police said in a statement on Twitter.

The shooter is also dead after an armed security guard from the bar stopped the shooter.

Three of the victims are in critical condition.

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas said in a tweet early Monday that his thoughts were with the families and friends of those affected by the violence.

The shooting happened outside the 9nine Ultra Lounge near U.S. Highway 40, according to the Associated Press. The circumstances that lead to this shooting are unknown.
