Kansas City police are investigating a shooting that occurred early Monday inside of a business located in the West Bottoms and left a victim with life-threatening injuries.
The incident was reported just after 4 a.m. at the Restaurant Depot in the 1500 block of West 12th Street. Officers arrived and found one victim on the ground just inside the entry door.
Another man said two persons entered the business and shot the victim. The gunmen went directly to a room with a safe. They left the office and then fled the building. The second man said he ran outside as the gunmen drove away. The robbers saw the man and shot at him as they sped away.
The man was not injured. The other victim was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.
Police did not have a detailed description of the gunmen.
