KSAL StaffMay 15, 2016

Police say officers have shot and wounded a man in Kansas City, Kansas, after he pointed a shotgun at the officers.

Police said in a news release that the shooting happened early Sunday when a man called about a disturbance and told officers his brother was breaking things inside a home.

The release says officers talked to the man, but when the officers left the house, the man came to the front door with a gun. Police say the suspect, who is white, then went back inside before returning to the front door and pointing the weapon. The release says that’s when the officers fired, striking the man in the leg.

Police say the suspect was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. None of the officers were hurt.
