GLADSTONE, Mo. (AP) _ Police say a suspect has been killed and an officer wounded near Kansas City, Missouri, after the suspect pulled out a handgun during a struggle.

Kansas City police said in a statement that the shooting happened Sunday night after a passenger ran from a vehicle that Gladstone police stopped for a traffic violation. Police say officers chased down the passenger who pulled out a handgun. Shots were fired, although the release didn't say whether an officer or the suspect pulled the trigger.

The suspect was fatally wounded and an officer sustained non-life threatening injuries. Police described the suspect only as a white male in his late teens.

The shooting came on the same day a San Antonio officer was fatally shot and a St. Louis officer was critically wounded.
