Local police said in a tweet that five other people were wounded during the incident

Four people have been killed in a shooting at a bar in Kansas city in the midwestern US state of Kansas.

Local police said in a tweet that five other people were wounded during the incident, but did not specify the venue where it had taken place, reports BBC News.

Police told the BBC that the suspect, a Hispanic man, was on the run after the incident.

Further details about the motive and whereabouts of the gunman are still unclear.

Local media report that a handgun was used during the shooting at Tequila KC, a bar in the city centre.

It comes just weeks after two separate shootings in Texas, which left 44 people dead.

So far this year, the US has been hit by more than 40 mass shootings - defined since 2012 as incidents that kill at least three people.

Walmart - often cited as the largest firearms seller in America - said last month that it would stop selling certain bullets used in assault-style weapons and handguns.

But America's gun lobby, the National Rifle Association, called the changes "shameful" and said the firm would lose business.
