Bar shootings early Sunday morning in Kansas City, Mo., and Birmingham, Ala., killed three people and wounded six, police said.

A security guard was one of the three people killed in a shooting at the Kansas City bar early Sunday that also wounded two others, including one critically wounded, according to family members.

Police haven't yet identified the victims, and they didn't release many details Sunday about what led to the shooting just before the Klymax Lounge's 1:30 a.m. closing time. They said two of the victims died at the scene and a third died at the hospital. Details about the circumstances that led to the shooting were not immediately available, and it wasn’t immediately clear where the victims were when they were shot.

In Birmingham, police said an exchange of gunfire wounded four people, including one with life-threatening injuries. Lt. Ron Harless said three men and a woman were shot outside Tin Roof in the city's Lakeview District, reported.

All four gunshot victims were transported to UAB Hospital. The shooting was under investigation, police said.

This story combines the Associated Press reports "Police: 3 dead, 2 wounded in early morning shooting at Kansas City bar" and "Alabama police: 4 people wounded in exchange of gunfire outside Birmingham bar."
