Three people have died and two people were injured in a shooting at a night club early Sunday morning in Kansas City, Missouri, KSHB reported.

Officers responded to a call around 1:25 a.m. about a shooting at Klymax Lounge. When they arrived, they found five victims.

Kansas City Police Department spokesperson Donna Drake told the Kansas City Star all five victims are believed to be adults.

Two people were pronounced dead at the scene. One was found inside the bar, the other outside, the outlet also reported. Three wounded people were transported to the hospital by emergency medical personnel.

Of the three people transported to the hospital, the first was soon pronounced dead. A second victim is in critical condition. The third is victim in stable condition, Drake told the Star.

Klymax Lounge, formerly called Club 42, is located in a residential area at 4244 Indiana Avenue in Kansas City, Missouri.

The Star reports detectives and investigators are processing the scene for evidence and seeking out witnesses.

KSHB reporter Caroline Hogan described the crime scene Sunday morning as "tense." Reporting from behind crime scene tape near the bar in a residential neigbhorhood, Hogan said "lots of police" were in the area and "a lot of neighbors just wondering what is going on."

Jackson County Sheriff Darryl Forté shared an update from KCPD and four photos from the scene early Sunday morning on Twitter.

A website for the venue is quite sparse, containing only a map, contact information, business hours, and a few testimonials. Business hours are listed for every day of the week between 12:00 p.m. and 1:30 a.m. The most recent posting to a Facebook page listed for the club was January 11.

TheBlaze has reached out for comment from Klymax Restaurant and Lounge.
