Nine people were shot in a mass shooting early Sunday morning in Kansas City, Kansas, leaving five killed and four wounded.

The shooting occurred in a small bar called Tequila KC at around 1:30 AM. According to NBC News, local authorities believe two suspects were involved.

Kansas City police spokespokeman Thomas Tomasic told NBC News that all four of the victims who were killed were Hispanic men, but that authorities do not suspect the shooting was racially motivated.

“We do not believe it is random, we do believe this was an isolated incident,” he said.

The suspects are still at large.
