KANSAS CITY (AP) — A member of a U.S. Marshal's task force shot and injured a man in Kansas City on Wednesday, authorities said.
The man's injuries were not believed go be life-threatening, said Sgt. Bill Lowe, a spokesman for the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Members of the task force spotted the man walking down a street. He was wanted on a federal probation violation and a Jackson County warrant for aggravated assault, Lowe said.
The man fled and at one point reached for a handgun in his waistband, prompting the officer to fire, Lowe said in a news conference at the scene. The man was shot in the arm.
The suspect then tried to break into a home. Another officer was injured by glass while struggling to arrest the suspect, Lowe said. The officer was taken to a hospital for observation.
Lowe said the task force includes officers from several law enforcement agencies and he was not immediately sure which agency employed the officer who fired at the suspect.
No names or further information were immediately available.
