KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Police Department says three people were injured in a shooting at Peppermill Lounge South early Sunday morning.
KCPD officers responded to a noise disturbance call at the business on Hickman Mills Dr. around 2:30 a.m. where a large crowd was gathered outside and heard gunshots.
Duncan Burnett, who works across the street from the lounge says the violence in the area continues to get worse.
“Every year it’s just never ending, it just gets worse and worse, and they do nothing,” Burnett said.
“I remember this community 40 years ago. I mean it’s changed a lot. I know there’s been some other incidents around this part lately but it’s all over the country, the state, it’s all over the world.”
Police found one victim on the street suffering from a gunshot wound and were transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Another victim was located in a vehicle nearby and was transported with life-threatening injuries.
A third victim was dropped off at a hospital around 3 a.m. with life-threatening injuries.
FOX4 reached out the bar and they have not gotten back with us.

“We know it’s not going to change, I mean you know, there’s been some other violent things in this neighborhood but it just freaks me out. It disturbs me definitely.”
Police say there is no suspect information at this time.
