Three Kansas City Police Officers Shot Sunday Morning

A suspect in the shooting of two undercover police officers had barricaded himself in a home in the 3000 block of Topping Avenue. See that surveillance video that police released below.

Koppu, a student at University of Missouri-Kansas City, was shot on July 6 during an armed robbery at J's Fish and Chicken Market.

Around 1:15 p.m., more than an hour after the first shooting, the suspect left the house, exchanged gunfire again, and died in that exchange.

"On behalf of the entire UMKC family, I want to express our gratitude to all of the fearless first responders involved in today's events, especially the three injured officers, along with our hopes for their speedy and full recovery".

The unidentified suspect then fled in a vehicle with another person, who was later arrested.

"An additional (3rd officer) was struck by gunfire and was taken to the hospital", KCPD reported on Twitter.

Two officers were wounded in that gunfire. "On behalf of the entire UMKC family, I want to express our gratitude to all of the courageous first responders involved in today's events, especially the three injured officers, along with our hopes for their speedy and full recovery", UMKC Chancellor C. Mauli Agrawal in a statement on Sunday afternoon.

The highway was shut down at the scene of the accident because of the shootout, according to Sgt. Deb Randol of the Kansas City Police Department's Accident Investigations Unit. That passenger was taken into custody. A third detective was wounded in the firefight, hit in the forearm by a bullet, Smith said. He was later declared deceased by KCFD.

A "large police response" then began "searching for a suspect", the office wrote.

Two witnesses, Carl Bradley and Lemmie Dean, who were in a nearby motel, said they heard five gunshots coming from the direction of the restaurant. The standoff continues at this time.

Officers with assault rifles blocked off the area during the search.

Police alerted worshipers at United Believers Community Church to leave the premises as quickly as possible.
