3 officers shot in KC; police engaged in standoff with suspect

Authorities say a suspect in the shooting of two Kansas City police officers shot a third officer who was searching for him and is now barricaded inside of a house.

Reports suggested all three wounded officers would survive. 'Our thoughts and prayers are with them for a speedy recovery'. That's when the suspect open fired on both officers. The neighbourhood around East 31st Street and Van Brunt Boulevard swarmed with helicopters, an armored auto, tactical teams and police officers as they attempted to capture the suspect on Sunday. The suspect then fled in a vehicle with another person, who was arrested when officers found the vehicle. He said multiple shots were fired in at least three different gunfights with the suspect.

"We are equally disheartened hearing about the three officers who were shot in pursuit", Subramanian was quoted in a statement.

Fox 4 reported the suspect was found dead at the home.

Two undercover officers were shot about 12:15 p.m., police spokesman Sgt. Jacob Becchina said.

The third police officer was shot in the arm during the search for the suspect, who had barricaded himself inside a home less than a mile from the motel, according to the Kansas City Star.

Kansas City Police Chief Rick Smith said detectives had been conducting surveillance on a person of interest in the July 6 murder and had followed him to the Sky-Vue Motel on Highway 40 on the east side of the city. The shootings continued an hour later, then ended after a short standoff and the suspect's death, it added.

All three officers were taken to the hospital for treatment with non-life-threatening injuries. The vehicle later stopped, with the driver fleeing the scene on foot.

"An additional (3rd officer) was struck by gunfire and was taken to the hospital", KCPD reported on Twitter.

The conditions of the wounded officers were not immediately released.
