One of the two suspects in yesterday’s Kansas City bar shooting is under arrest and the second suspect is still at large.

On October 6, 2019, Breitbart News reported two suspects allegedly opened fire in the KC Tequila Bar, following an altercation. Four people were killed in the shooting and five others were injured.

The New York Post reports police now have one of the two suspects in custody. The suspect, 23-yea-old Javier Alatorre, was arrested in Missouri.

Alatorre’s arrest came shortly after police released photos from surveillance footage:

The other suspect, 29-year-old Hugo Villanueava-Morales (pictured), is still at large and police consider him “armed and dangerous.”

A bartender told police one of the two suspects had been kicked out of the bar earlier in the night, and returned with a firearm.

Breitbart News reported Democrat presidential hopeful Robert “Beto” O’Rourke seized on the shooting, in order to push more gun control, before the facts in the incident were known.
