A Kansas City man has died and as many as eight more people were wounded early Sunday morning when gunfire erupted outside of a private club near 20th Street and Prospect Avenue.

Police in the area heard the gunshots around 3:30 a.m. and raced to the scene to find a crowd of people fleeing on foot and in vehicles. Officers found many people who had been shot who were taken to area hospitals.

Marlon E. Randolph, 23, died and a woman suffered life-threatening injuries.

Other injuries were considered minor, and most of the victims were treated and released.

Police believe the disturbance began inside the club and then continued outside. Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477 (474-TIPS).
