KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) —

A tragic incident unfolded in Kansas City early Sunday morning as authorities responded to two separate shootings in close proximity, resulting in the deaths of at least three individuals and leaving five others wounded, according to Missouri police.

In a parking lot and on the adjacent street, the lifeless bodies of two men and one woman were discovered, revealed Jake Becchina, spokesperson for the Kansas City Police Department, in an email statement.

Reports indicated that an additional five individuals with non-life-threatening injuries had been transported to various hospitals by private vehicles or ambulances, shared Becchina. He further elaborated, “Preliminary findings suggest that a large gathering was taking place at the intersection’s parking lot when the victims were shot.”

Preliminary investigations conducted by law enforcement suggested that the gathering had convened outside an automotive repair shop, which had previously attracted police attention, as reported by KSHB-TV.

Expressing his condolences, Kansas City, Missouri, Mayor Quinton Lucas took to Twitter to address the incident, stating, “My heartfelt sympathies go out to the families affected by this morning’s shooting during an apparent after-hours gathering near 57 and Prospect. If the establishment was aware of people being present without proper security, selling alcohol, and violating our laws, it should face closure.”

As of now, there is no available information regarding any arrests made in connection with the shootings, according to KSHB-TV. Additionally, authorities responded to another nearby shooting on Prospect Avenue, close to 31st Street, at approximately 3 a.m., resulting in critical injuries, though the exact number of victims has not been disclosed.
