ATI: Gates Shooting (2nd Video)


On July 15th, we shared video footage of a shooting that occurred earlier that morning at Gates Bar-B-Q, located in the 10400 block of E. US 40 Hwy in Independence, MO. During that incident, three masked suspects entered the business and assaulted an employee with a sledge hammer and shot him with a pistol. The victim was transported to an area hospital with life threatening injuries and survived the attack.

This is still an active investigation and we continue to ask the public for assistance in identifying these three suspects. This is the complete video of the assault, with the victim’s face covered. We hope that showing this video again and in its entirety will help spread awareness to this incident and generate more leads.

If you can help identify any of these suspects in this video, please call the Tips Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS, IPD Tips at (816) 325-7777 or email

If the information given to the Tips Hotline, results in an arrest or a warrant being issued, the caller is eligible to receive a cash award of up to $2,000.
