Kansas City: Gunman on run after four shot dead in bar

Four people have been killed in a shooting at a bar in Kansas City in the midwestern US state of Kansas.

Local police said in a tweet that five other people were wounded during the incident between 10th and Central Avenue.

The police later told the BBC that the suspect, a Hispanic man, was on the run after the incident.

Further details about the motive and whereabouts of the gunman are still unclear.

Shots were fired at about 01:30 local time (06:30 GMT) at Tequila KC, a private, members-only bar in the city centre.

Police spokesman Thomas Tomasic said it was unclear whether more than one gunman was involved. The identities of the victims have not yet been released.

The incident comes just weeks after two separate shootings in Texas, which left 44 people dead.

So far this year, the US has been hit by more than 40 mass shootings – defined since 2012 as incidents that kill at least three people.
