At least one gunman entered a Kansas City, Kansas, bar early Sunday and shot nine people, killing four of them, according to Kansas City, Kansas, police.

The shooting occurred shortly after 1:30 a.m. at Tequila KC Bar near 10th Street and Central Avenue.

In addition to Kansas City, Kansas, Police, agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms responded to the scene.

At least a dozen people gathered with officers near the bar Sunday morning. After speaking with an agent, one woman broke down in tears; a man held her up to keep her from falling to the pavement.

Another man who walked away from the group placed his hand against a nearby business and threw up.
