Report regarding Kansas City Police officer facing gunfire today:
Officer Involved Shooting
Shortly before 1100 am this morning, KCPD officers were conducting a residence check at a residence in the 500 block of N. Lawndale for a subject wanted in regard to a Platte County Warrant. While the officers were still outside the residence, a party inside the residence began shooting at the officers. The party shot multiple rounds at the officers striking one in his leg. Several officers returned fire. The officers then took up positions of cover until it was safe to extract them and get the injured officer medical treatment. The injured officer, a 15 year veteran and member of our Tactical Response Team, was transported to an area hospital. It appears his injuries will be minor.
An operation 100 was then called. At 1:00 pm tactical officers made entry into the residence where they later located the suspect. It appeared the suspect had been shot. He was transported to an area hospital with life threatening injuries.
The scene was cleared and is now being processed by detectives.
