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.
