According to Kansas City police,
nine people were shot, four of them fatally, early Sunday morning in a bar in
Kansas City, Kansas.
According to Thomas Tomasic of the
Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department, police received a call at about 1:27
a.m. about a shooting at Tequila KC Bar at 10th Street and Central Avenue.
Witnesses said two gunmen entered
the bar with handguns and began shooting. The incident happened after an
altercation that occurred earlier in the bar.
Four people, all Hispanic and of
ages ranging from mid-20s to late-50s, died in the incident. Five others were
hospitalized and are in stable condition.
Tomasic said investigators do not
think the shooting was racially motivated. The incident happened in a largely
Hispanic neighborhood and is believed to be related to the altercation.
Investigators are reviewing
surveillance video from inside the bar.
Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”
While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
