— Kansas City police say an officer suffered minor injuries when he was accidentally shot by a fellow officer while trying to apprehend a suspect.

Capt. Rich Lockhart said the officers were investigating a report of a man shooting a rifle in the street Saturday morning.

When police arrived, the 22-year-old man was in the street with the gun but then ran into a house.

Lockhart says as the officers were surrounding the house, one officer accidentally shot the other officer. The 28-year-old officer was shot in the left thumb and had injuries to his face.

The suspect with the rifle was taken into custody and faces charges for discharging a firearm within the city limits.

But were the officers trained in the use of weapons in missouri! Were they rookies? How the hell do you accidently shoot a fellow officer? I love how vague the media is today and you know the police dept. will never give out any info or the true story on anything involving a screw up within the dept. Just the facts man!

Wyandotte, is seriously crime ridden and any officer that's been on duty for any amount of time there has been truly put to the test in every way.
