KC Police Shoot, Kill Man

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)- Kansas City police killed a 22-year-old man who shot at them as he fled an investigation into prostitution.

Police said they were responding to a call Saturday afternoon about suspected prostitution. When officers pulled up behind a car, a man jumped out of the car and ran away.

Police spokesman Darin Snapp said the fleeing man fired shots at the officers, and both officers returned fire, killing the man. Neither officer was injured.

The officers have been put on routine administrative leave while the shooting is investigated. The Kansas City Star reports that the victim’s identity has not been released.
