3 officers shot in search for robbery, murder suspect in Kansas City

US Kansas City Police kill man suspected of murdering Telangana student earlier this month

The newspaper reports that the suspect came out of a home where he had barricaded himself inside Sunday afternoon and exchanged gunfire with police, who killed him.

Identities of the suspects and officers have not been released.

Koppu was a master's degree student from India studying at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

According to police, undercover detectives and tactical operations were working an ongoing investigation at the Sky Vu Motel at 8300 E. 40 Highway. On the same lines, we are equally disheartened hearing about the three officers who were shot in pursuit. Officers chased the vehicle to a residential neighborhood near the intersection of 30th Street and Topping Avenue and arrested one of the men who had sped from the motel, police said.

A third officer was later hit by gunfire and was taken to a nearby hospital, according to the office. Gunfire was exchanged. Two officers were hurt. We are extremely grateful all three officers are expected to recover but we need to be mindful of the mental toll incidents like this can have, not just on the officers injured but those who witnessed and responded to the various scenes.




That suspect at larged was tracked to a home where a standoff began and more shots were fired.

Officers are also searching for the suspect in the 3000 block of Bellaire. He was shot and taken into custody. He was later declared deceased by KCFD. They encountered a suspect who fired on officers with a rifle. Two officers were struck and are at the hospital in stable condition.

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.

Police had been watching multiple locations for the homicide suspect, and he "popped up" at Sky-Vu Motel, 8300 E. USA 40, Chief of Police Rick Smith said.

Police alerted worshipers at United Believers Community Church to leave the premises as quickly as possible.
