Recap of shooting two weeks ago


Kansas City Mayor Quinton Luca’s office is seeking the revocation of business licenses and the closure of the businesses that were “associated” with the June 25th mass shooting that killed three people.

Nine others were injured in the shooting, which happened on June 25th near 57th and Prospect Avenue.

Police have responded to over 30 911 calls for service to that location.

The mayor’s office said they were operated as “unlicensed clubs.”

“I respect our businesses, but reckless disregard for the safety of patrons, neighbors, and our community will never be tolerated in Kansas City,” Lucas said in a statement. “Three people lost their lives, nine more were injured, and dozens of lives were changed due in no small part to the gross negligence of an unlicensed club owner, masquerading as an auto repair shop open at 4 a.m. in the morning.”

A hearing will be held to determine whether the licenses will be revoked.
