KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — The hunt continues for a second suspect in a weekend Kansas bar shooting that left four dead and five wounded after officers searched two homes in the area without finding the fugitive.


On Tuesday, police looked for 29-year-old Hugo Villanueva-Morales first at a duplex that is less than 1 mile away from the Tequila KC bar. Gunfire erupted there early Sunday about two hours after Villanueva-Morales got into an argument and was forced to leave.


Police Officer Jonathon Westbrook says police also searched a second home before determining Villanueva-Morales wasn't there. Villanueva-Morales and 23-year-old Javier Alatorre are charged with four counts of first-degree murder. Alatorre was arrested later Sunday in Kansas City, Missouri. Police say Villanueva-Morales should be considered "armed and dangerous." ___
