Leavenworth man police shot arrested after hospital release

(AP) — The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says a man who was shot by police last week in Leavenworth is in custody after he was released from the hospital. 

The KBI said 31-year-old Donald Barden Jr. was arrested Wednesday. 

He was booked into jail on possible charges of aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer and felon in possession of a firearm. 

The KBI says officers confronted Barden on a Leavenworth street on Feb. 13. 

They say Barden ignored commands to drop his weapon and he was shot when he pointed the gun at officers and ran toward them.
