University Health Shooting

"At about 8:39AM this morning Kansas City Police Officers were dispatched to University Health Hospital on a reported “assist the officer.”  Early call notes indicated there was an officer shot.  Preliminary investigation revealed a security officer was escorting a recently discharged patient when a confrontation occurred.  The patient disarmed the security officer of his firearm and one round was discharged from the weapon.  The guard was struck from the discharge of the weapon and suffered a non-life threatening injury.  Other security officers took the individual into custody immediately without further incident.

"Detectives and crime scene investigators responded to process evidence, and interview anyone that may have saw something.  The subject of interest was taken into custody for further investigation.  During the incident there were call notes that indicated this was an active shooter incident.  This was not an active shooter and an isolated incident.  There is no active threat to the public."
