Prosecutor: Woman shot by Kansas City police was armed

(AP) — A Kansas woman who was shot and wounded by Kansas City, Missouri, police last week has been charged with several counts. 

The Kansas City Star reports that Jackson County prosecutors have charged 26-year-old Leonna Hale, of Kansas City, Kansas, with unlawful firearm possession, exhibiting a firearm and resisting arrest. 

The prosecutor’s office says police body camera video of the shooting showed Hale was holding a gun in her right hand Friday as police tried to arrest her in connection with a reported carjacking that had occurred in Kansas City, Kansas. 

Police have said both officers fired at Hale in the parking lot as she fled holding a gun.
