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, but did not specify the venue where it had taken place.

Police told Newswire 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.

Local media report that a handgun was used during the shooting at Tequila KC, a bar in the city centre.

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