One of the two suspected gunman in the deadly mass shooting in Kansas City over the weekend has been captured – while a second suspect remains at large.
Fox News reports that Javier Alatorre, 23, was captured on Sunday afternoon in Kansas City, Missouri, following a deadly shooting at a Kansas City, Kansas bar early Sunday morning. Alatorre is one of two gunmen suspect of fatally shooting four people and injuring five more at at Tequila KC Bar.
A second gunman is still at large, and is reportedly considered armed and dangerous. The manhunt continues for Hugo Villanueva-Morales, who is pictured on the left, beside Alatorre, who is now in custody on $1 million bond.
Both men are reportedly facing four first-degree murder charges.
Earlier Saturday night, a bartender at Tequila KC Bar refused to serve one of the suspects, and he allegedly threw a cup at the bartender before fellow patrons at the bar helped eject him. According to Fox News, it is not clear if the man was Villanueva-Morales or Alatorre, but he returned to the bar after last call around 1 a.m. with the second man, and opened fire.
“It’s a pretty small bar …You have two guys come in, start shooting, people are just running. People are just running wherever they can,” Kansas City police spokesperson T.J. Tomasic told the Kansas City Star.
Authorities have not yet identified the deceased or injured victims. The five who were injured are all expected to survive.
