KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- One person was injured by broken glass as a result of a shooting in the parking lot of a Qdoba on Monday evening.

Kansas City Police responded to the parking lot of the Antioch Crossing shopping center, outside a Walmart and a Qdoba Mexican Restaurant, at 53rd and N. Antioch, near Gladstone.

Police said one person inside a restaurant suffered non-life threatening injuries as a result of flying glass.

A Ford SUV was seen up against the Qdoba, on the sidewalk, with multiple bulletholes in the windshield.

FOX 4 spoke with a customer at the Qdoba who said she saw a blue vehicle driving quickly through the parking lot and strike a lightpole before the driver fired shots at the white SUV. The driver of that blue vehicle then fled the scene.

Joe Bender was shopping across the shopping center when he heard gunfire.

“We heard another louder shot, then another smaller shot, and then there was a series of seven or eight loud shots,” he said.

Bender called 911 and told the dispatcher he was looking at the shooter.

“When we drove by, the guy’s standing there in the stance, and he was pointing the gun toward the building and the white SUV was up against the building,” he said.

Bender said he watched the man walk into the restaurant and then saw heads start popping up all through the parking lot. He said, “Everybody was down behind their cars. They were all hiding.”

As police got there and crime tape went up across the parking lot, Bender reflected on his many years living in this area.

“I just live a block away and stray bullets can go a long ways, no matter who’s firing them," he said. "It’s sad to see it because it is Christmas time and people will do stupid things.”

Police said they couldn’t find any victims or the shooters.

It is not known at this time if anyone else fired shots. Police did not say what led to the shooting. None of the parties involved in the shooting are in police custody at this time.

The investigation is ongoing.

Correction: An earlier report indicated one person was grazed by a bullet. Police later clarified that a person was injured by broken glass.
