'All I Can See Is Their Faces': 4 Killed, 5 Injured In Bar Shooting In Kansas City, Kansas

Updated at 8:30 p.m. — Celeste Trevino was dancing with a "friend of a friend" early Sunday morning at Tequila KC. It was about a half-hour before closing time when two men came into the close-knit neighborhood bar in Kansas City, Kansas. One of the men walked toward the pair.

“We were talking and dancing,” she said through tears at a Sunday night vigil, “and the next thing I knew, he wasn’t there anymore.”

Her dance partner, whom she called Ever, was killed, along with three other Latino men ranging in age from their mid 20 to late 50s. Five others were wounded. Police said they don’t believe the shooting was racially motivated — but said it wasn’t random, either.

No one was in custody as of Sunday evening. Authorities hadn’t provided much information beyond what they told reporters early in the day: They were trying to determine whether someone had returned to Tequila KC after having an argument there earlier in the evening. Officials released still photographs of the two men, taken from surveillance footage.
