Kansas City police say a gunman chased two shooting victims to a hospital, and shot the male victim again before ending his own life.

Police say the two victims -- a male and a female -- were shot during an incident on Seventh Street and drove themselves to the University of Kansas Medical Center late Monday night.

The shooter pursued the two victims to the hospital. The male victim, later identified by police as Dominic Garcia, 28, got out of the car at the emergency room, but he bypassed the emergency room doors.

Garcia ran up Cambridge Street toward the hospital's main doors, but those doors were locked as per the hospital's late night policy.

The gunman caught up to Garcia at the hospital doors and shot him again before killing himself.

All three victims were rushed inside the emergency room. Garcia died from his injuries. The female victim who was in the car suffered minor injuries and is expected to survive.

Police were first called to the initial shooting scene at Seventh Avenue at 11:30 p.m., and officers later responded to the shooting at the hospital.

Police believe the shootings were a domestic dispute.

The hospital continued admitting patients while police investigated the shootings. The KUMED Police Department tweeted that all clinics are safe and open and operating normally.

    OMG, this is why my job (large medical facility in Midwest) has us going to a "Active shooter training class next week...........WTF is this world coming to......

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    I yearn for the more simple times such as my childhood days, every day it gets more and more outrageous this senseless violence

  • Soda

    From this little info, I would guess the shooter was either related to the male victim or was his lover, why else would he kill himself instead of running away?

  • ohdearme

    How sad the female victim should she survive will have to deal with this for the rest of her life. The shooter definitely wanted the male DEAD!

  • che’lint

    How horrible to be at a hospital and hearing gun fire. my goodness the evil in that.

  • Dowoop

    Or the female was his lover. People are nuts these days and the same way women fight other women instead of the men is the same way men kill the men.

  • Vonn

    WOW. This is absolutely nuts. Some folks just don't value human lives.

  • Renee26

    Sounds like another case of "If I can't have you nobody can" antics

  • Soda

    That too, maybe he thought he had killed her so what was left to live for.

  • Renee26

    Love triangle guilt

  • Renee26

    I can't believe our city has came to this. Our own hospitals, grocery stores, and schools are no longer safe. I live here and the mess we see on TV every day is breaking my heart. I saw this on the news this morning and started crying. We as people of color have to start wanting more. We deserve more. We are more. Please realize how important YOU are. We are becoming extinct. I love you. Love yourself

  • FukkFolks2018

    JUST LIKE THAT! Said it with his chest.

  • dru and neil

    Wow he was going to get his revenge no matter what before he died.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    I thought the shooter was the only one who died , let me go read this again...

  • dru and neil

    It has to be someone he knows because he was hell bent on getting his revenge. He couldn’t care less about himself. The gravity of the situation would have sunk in with most folks but he hunted them down.

  • Yoni7

    Condolences to the fatalities......
    I know people are killed everyday.....but yall know what time of the year it is.

  • Yoni7

    LOL This just made me chuckle.

  • ? ?ee??

    That’s how it be sometimes. I’m sure that “victim” did some fcked up shit to him to warrant all that. Case closed. Next case!!

  • Renee26


  • dru and neil

    I’m wondering if I’ve ever hated anyone THAT much before, I mean I know folks do crazy stuff in the heat of the moment, but to chase someone down is different.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I'm going to think it was over the girl. I could be wrong, but it feels like that.

  • SpiceGirl

    I think we will be doing this as well....I work in a hospital myself (Midwest)

  • RealATLPeach36

  • RealATLPeach36

    I know right
    1) the determined killer
    2) the girl who couldn’t get out the car because of her injuries
    3) the man who couldn’t escape being shot twice..

    4) the killer who’s now dead and going to hell (if you’re a believer)

  • RealATLPeach36

  • RealATLPeach36

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Dudes act like beeches nowadays ???

  • C Mack

    Got all the way to the hospital and still died. Dang! I wonder what would have happened if the male victim had gone to the proper entrance

  • monique

    I thought he went after him because they were lovers. If she was the gf or ex gf, why didn't he shoot her again?

  • monique

    Yea, who is whovthough? He shot the male again, I'm thinking he was his lover.

  • monique

    But ehy the guy? If she was the reason, why not shoot her again, she couldn't get out the car? Either he had beef or they (the males) were involved.

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    WHATS BEEF... Real life.

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    What do you mean stuck between the doors? Or one door opens, you go inside and then the next door is locked?

  • Dora LaBelle

    Karma said it wasn't that fcked up. She lived and the shooter died. js

  • Dora LaBelle

    The crazy part is she is alive and the shooter is dead.

  • SpiceGirl

    That is crazy......
