KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A Kansas City officer has shot and wounded a suspected prowler accused of pointing a gun at the officer.
The Kansas City Star reports that the suspect was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The man was shot early Sunday in a downtown parking garage after police responded to a report of car prowling.
As the officer approached two men, the man accused of pointing the gun was shot. Police say the second man was taken into custody without incident.
The officer wasn't injured.
