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.
