Body found in home where 3 Kansas City officers were shot

(AP) — Authorities say three Kansas City police officers were shot and wounded while searching a suspected drug house, prompting a standoff that ended about 18 hours later with the discovery of a body. 

Missouri, patrol spokesman Sgt. Bill Lowe said the SWAT team entered around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, finding the body and an uninjured woman. 

She has been taken into custody, along with two others who surrendered from the home hours earlier. 

One of those who surrendered, 50-year-old Jimmie Lewis Jr., was charged Wednesday with federal charges stemming from a November 2021 police pursuit. 

No charges were immediately filed in the shooting.
