KANSAS CITY, Ks. (WDAF) – Kansas City, Kansas police surrounded a home on Tuesday afternoon.

Man wanted for involvement of deadly bar shooting

FBI and KCK police’s tactical team surrounded a home near 14th Street and Riverview Avenue.

Sources tell FOX4 they believed the second suspect in this weekend’s mass shooting in KCK, 29-year-old Hugo Villanueva-Morales, might have been in the home. They were acting on a tip officials received.

Some people came out of the home, and officials evacuated part of the neighborhood. Family members of the suspect were on scene.

The area is less than a mile from Tequila KC, the KCK bar where four people were shot and killed and five others were injured early Sunday, reports WDAF.
