Police are hampered somewhat in the investigation because “being a bar at 1:30, stories vary a lot.”
Police stated that the two men had an altercation with some people in the bar, then left and returned with at least one of the men having a handgun. There were 40 people in the bar at the time.
Police Officer Thomas Tomasic said authorities believe the shooting around 1:30 a.m. Sunday at Tequila KC Bar stemmed from an earlier altercation. He said the two gunmen had apparently gotten into a dispute with some people inside the bar, left, then returned with handguns.
Around 40 people were inside the small bar at the time, Tomasic said. The gunfire sent them running for the exits, with the injured leaving trails of blood as they fled.
“When people came out, they were definitely running,” he said.
All four men who were killed were Hispanic, but Tomasic said authorities do not believe the shooting was racially motivated. The shooting happened in a largely Hispanic neighborhood.
Police are reviewing surveillance videos in an attempt to identify the suspects.
The anti-gun crowd is foaming at the mouth over this “mass shooting.” The left is now targeting Senator Mitch McConnell for not pushing the gun control agenda. They view all of these sorts of crimes as the same, when they are not the same. This was NOT a random mass shooting. This incident stemmed from a bar fight, or “altercation.” Even if they didn’t have access to guns, they would have used knives or bats, and innocent people would have been targeted. Any bar in any city could experience such carnage, regardless of the weapons. Alcohol, adrenaline, and tempers are always a bad mix.
ANOTHER MASS SHOOTING: This time in Kansas City, Kansas, where a gunman walked into a bar and opened fire, killing four Americans and injuring five.

The neighborhood is largely Hispanic. Police do not believe it was racially motivated (but watch, some leftist will try to make it that). Police returned to the bar at 7:30 a.m. with a search warrant.
