3 Kansas City officers shot while executing search warrant
(AP) — Authorities say three Kansas City police officers were shot and wounded while executing a search warrant, prompting a standoff at a home.
Kansas City police Chief Stacey Graves told reporters outside a hospital that the tactical response team officers had begun to breach a door around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday when they were fired upon.
Graves says the officers returned fire and were taken to the hospital, where they were in non-life-threatening condition.
The shooting prompted a standoff early Wednesday at the home and the chief said no one was immediately taken into custody.
The Missouri Highway Patrol tweeted that the standoff was continuing as of 6:30 a.m. Wednesday.
