3 police officers shot in Kansas City, rifle-wielding suspect killed

All three detectives sustained non-life-threatening injuries and are expected to be alright

Authorities shot and killed a man suspected of shooting three Kansas City police officers, a newspaper reported. He said the suspect came charging out of the house allegedly firing his rifle at officers, who returned fire shooting the gunman.

The shootings reportedly happened just before noon Sunday.

At least three police officers were shot in Kansas City, Missouri, and the suspect was killed after a standoff with cops, officials said Sunday afternoon.

UPDATE: 1:33:00 p.m. 07/15/2018 - The two officers who were initially shot at around 12:15 p.m. Sunday are at the hospital in stable condition however a third officer was shot in another round of gunfire later on.

They are now in the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and are in stable condition. The vehicle and the other person were soon found by police. That passenger was taken into custody.

According to police, undercover detectives and tactical operations were working an ongoing investigation at the Sky Vu Motel at 8300 E. 40 Highway.

Relatives said Koppu was studying for a master's degree in computer engineering at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

A suspect in the shooting of two undercover police officers had barricaded himself in a home in the 3000 block of Topping Avenue.

KSHB TV reports that two of the officers are hospitalized and expected to recover.

Additional shots were fired and police told residents to remain in their homes. "He was declared deceased by KCFD at that time". Police shot and killed the suspect.

"We are equally disheartened hearing about the three officers who were shot in pursuit", Subramanian was quoted in a statement. Many of our children who go to the USA for studies fall short of money hence they choose to work instead of putting more stress on their parents.

"There is a large response from our department right now, basically every asset that we have to bring this situation safely to an end", said Kansas City police spokesman Sgt. Jacob Becchina, the KC Star reported.

The conditions of the wounded officers were not immediately released.
