"Right now there's nobody in custody, no suspect information," he said.

He implored witnesses to contact police, either by calling the homicide unit at 816-234-5043 or by anonymously submitting a tip at 816-474-8477.

Responding officers performed CPR on the victim until Kansas City fire personnel arrived and transported him to a hospital, where he died.

Carl Bradley and Lemmie Dean, who were inside a nearby motel, said they heard five gunshots coming from the direction of the restaurant. By the time they made it outside, the suspect had fled.
