Two people were killed and at least 15 others injured after a shooting late night Sunday outside a bar in Kansas City, U.S. state of Missouri, according to police.

A man started firing into a line of people waiting to get inside the 9ine Ultra Lounge bar about 11:30 p.m. in the 4800 block of Noland Road, said David Jackson, a Kansas City Police Department spokesman.

Police said on Monday that they believed a security guard shot and killed the suspect. A woman was also shot and killed, but her relation to the suspect is unknown.

As of Monday morning, the number of injured was at least 15, including three people who were listed in critical condition, Jackson said. It was unclear if all 15 people suffered gunshot wounds.

"My thoughts are with the families and friends of those whose lives were lost or impacted by last night's mass shooting. Thankful security appears to have kept the situation from being even worse," Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas said on Twitter.

The police didn't release the identities of the people killed. They are investigating the motive for the shooting.
