Three people were fatally shot and two others injured when gunfire broke out at a Kansas City nightclub early Sunday.
Police in the Missouri city arrived at the Klymax Lounge at 1:25 a.m., just before closing time, to find the five victims in and outside the club.
Two were reported dead at the scene, with a third victim dying at the hospital.
One of the survivors was listed in critical condition, while the other was stable, police said.
It remains unclear if police have a suspect or a motive for the deadly shooting.
The violence came less than an hour after four people were shot during a wild gunfight outside the Tin Roof bar in Birmingham, Ala.
An off-duty cop was working at the bar when someone rushed in to report the shooting.
Police found three men and a woman injured by gunfire, according to AL.com.
An SUV reportedly fled the scene before being pulled over not far from the bar. Its possible connection to the crime was not immediately clear.
As of Sunday morning, the Gun Violence Archive recorded 230 mass shootings in the US in 2023. The GVA lists mass shootings as shootings that leave four or more victims.
