Suspect in shooting of 3 Kansas City cops holed up

KC officers shot - police in standoff with suspect

A gunman, who was being investigated in the killing of Sharath Koppu of Warangal, was shot dead in a shootout with the Kansas City Police on Sunday. He said the suspect came charging out of the house allegedly firing his rifle at officers, who returned fire shooting the gunman.

The shooting happened just after 12:15 p.m. Gunfire was exchanged. Two officers were hurt. Three cops are said to have suffered injuries in the attack by the accused, prompting the cops to shoot him to death.

The suspect's name has not been identified. A short time later, that vehicle was found and an accomplice was arrested.

The suspect also fired at the police as a result of which three undercover officers who had kept a surveillance on him and confronted him were injured.

There, gunfire was exchanged with the suspect at least three more times. A third officer was hit by gunfire and also in stable condition. All three officers are expected to live.

The suspect then holed up in an unoccupied house, police said.

A suspect in the killing of 25-year-old Koppu has been killed in an exchange of fire with the police, leaving three undercover officers injured, U.S. authorities said today.

Kansas City Police said on their Twitter that the suspect was shot and taken into custody.

The Kansas City Star reports that a third officer was shot while searching for the suspect, who barricaded himself inside a home less than a mile (1.6 kilometers) from the motel.

"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". That officer's condition is unknown at this time. He was later declared deceased by KCFD. Officers fired back, fatally wounding him.

In searching for the suspect, police blocked off traffic around 5618 East 28th St. Officers with semiautomatic long guns were positioned at each street corner.
