Authorities say four people have been killed in an overnight shooting at a bar in Kansas City, Kansas, reports the AP. KSHB-TV reports that officers were called Sunday at 1:30am to the Tequila KC Bar for a shooting. Police said someone entered the bar and opened fire, fatally wounding four people. Five others were taken to a hospital in stable condition for treatment. No one has been arrested in the shooting, and a motive has not yet been identified. "We do not have a good enough description yet, to put anything out for a suspect, or suspects, we don't even know how many," police spokesman Thomas Tomasic tells CNN. Kansas City police are investigating the shooting and gave brief details on their Twitter account. (Read more shooting stories.)
