    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – US police shot down a suspect who had wounded three officers in the shootout with them in the US central Missouri state on Sunday, the Kansas City Police Department said.

    "Approximately 12:15pm undercover and tactical officers were conducting an ongoing investigation at 8300 E 40 hwy. They encountered a suspect who fired on officers with a rifle. Two officers were struck… An additional (3rd officer) was struck by gunfire and was taken to the hospital… At approximately 1:15pm the armed suspect exited a residence and once again exchanged gunfire with officers. He was shot and taken into custody. He was declared deceased by KCFD at that time," the police wrote on Twitter.

    The injured policemen had been hospitalized and were in the stable condition, the police pointed out.
