KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Authorities are investigating after an off-duty officer was killed and a woman was wounded at a restaurant in the Westport bar and entertainment district in Kansas City.
The Lee’s Summit Police Department has confirmed that the person killed Sunday night on the patio of Californos was Officer Thomas Orr. The department’s website say the 30-year-old worked as a school resource officer of Campbell Middle School.
Police say the shooting happened after an argument broke out between patrons. Orr wasn’t involved. A woman was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the arm that wasn’t believed to be life threatening.
Police say at least 200 people were on the patio when the shooting happened. The suspect remains at large, and witnesses are urged to contact police.
