Two dead and 15 are injured after gunman opens fire on revelers outside Kansas City nightclub before being killed by security guards as terrifying video shows gunfight erupting in parking lot

At least two people were killed and 15 left injured in a shooting outside a bar in Kansas City, celebrating the Chiefs' playoff victory last night.
The shooting took place shortly before midnight on Sunday, when a gunman opened fire on a line of people waiting to enter a bar.
Two people were found dead, including a woman in the parking lot of the 9ine Ultra Lounge, police said.
A video posted on social media appeared to show armed security guards open fire on the suspect in the parking lot.
It is believed the shooter is one of the two dead found at scene after he was shot by an armed security guard, Kansas City police said at a press conference. 
A Facebook post on the club's page advertised Sunday night's 'Sold Out Sundays' event, which appeared to be a celebration of the Kansas City Chiefs winning the AFC Championship.
The Chiefs - featured on the event's artwork - beat the Tennessee Titans on Sunday to advance to the Super Bowl. 
Police said the gunman shot into a line of people waiting to enter the building, but the motive for the shooting was not immediately clear.

A police spokesman added that responding officers found 'a chaotic scene' and had to call in help from around the city.
During the investigation, police heard that people were showing up to local hospitals with injuries from the shooting.
A police statement said there 'may still have 15 other victims at area hospitals' with at least three people in a critical condition.
Video posted on social media showed three security guards, at least one carrying a weapon, telling a suspected to 'drop it, put it down', as they advanced towards the person in a parking lot.
The security guards ducked behind parked cars before one opened fire. It is not clear if the suspect their fired on was the gunman.
Voices could be heard shouting 'what are you doing', just before a gunshot the seemed to come from security personnel rang out.
The security guards continued to pursue the suspect after the shot was fired. 
Police believe 'the only suspect' is one of the two people found dead at the scene. 
A spokesman said: 'Officers were already close by in the area and responded. They located a chaotic scene with several people running around.

'They had to call in crews from all around the city to stabilize the scene before they could start the investigation. 
'Once they began the investigation they found one adult male deceased and one adult female deceased in the parking lot. 
'Police officers were not involved in the shooting. No police officers fired any shots in this incident. 
'While they were investigating they received reports of several more victims showing up at area hospitals.
'Right now we have 15 unidentified people around the metro area. Three are listed in a critical condition.
'It's unknown what motivated this incident. There was a line to get in, there was a bar. The suspected showed up and started shooting into the line of people. We don't know what precipitated all of that. 
'We don't know if there was any specific person targeted or disturbance yet, we are still investigating what led up to this. 
'We are not aware of any specific type of firearm or anything at this point. 
'We do believe the shooter that started the incident is one of the deceased parties and the information we are getting is that an armed security guard at the location stopped the shooter.'

Further details have not been released and officers say it will take them 'a little time to sort through' the crime scene.
Jean Peters Baker, Jackson County Prosecutor, said at the scene in a reference to last night's victory for the city's team: 'We know the number [of victims] is high and it just put such a tragic end to such a wonderful day in Kansas City.
'So it's just hard to stand here and talk about this kind of tragedy on really one of the best days Kansas City has really had in a long time.
'But here we are. I know that I have two individuals that are dead. And I have scores that are in the hospital right now having their wounds mended. 
'It is contained, the police do have this very well in hand. The investigation is proceeding well.'
The scene was near US Highway 40. KSHB-TV, which had a reporter at the scene, identified the bar outside which the shooting took place as 9ine Ultra Lounge.
The venue sits around two miles from Arrowhead Stadium, where the Chiefs beat the Titans 35-24 to reach Superbowl LIV in Miami on February 2.
There were a total of 148 homicides and 491 non-fatal shootings in Kansas City during 2019. 
The shooting comes as two people were also killed and five others injured following a shooting during a concert at a San Antonio club on Sunday evening.
An argument broke out inside of the club in Texas between a group of individuals and one person pulled out a gun and started shooting, police said. 
Last October four people were killed and five wounded in a Kansas City area bar when two suspects opened fire.
