Police investigate child's injury after KC officer fires into SUV
KANSAS CITY (AP) - Kansas City police said they were trying to determine whether a baby with a toe injury was shot when an officer fired into a sport vehicle that had rammed the officer's motorcycle.
Police said in a news release that hospital personnel told authorities the child's injury appeared to be the result of a gunshot wound. The release said it was "horrible" that an infant was involved.
Police said the SUV fled after the ramming and was spotted after nearly hitting another officer's vehicle. The SUV then disappeared before it was found unoccupied, with a man, the injured child and another infant nearby.
Officers detained the man found with the children and another man who was walking away from the SUV. The officer who was rammed suffered only minor injuries.
