RUSSELL, Kan. (AP) Authorities say a police officer has been shot in the leg and a suspect taken into custody at a Kansas motel.
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says in a news release that officers were responding to a report about a possibly suicidal man Thursday night when a shot was fired through a closed door. The release says three other shots then were fired from the room within minutes.
One of the shots struck a patrol sergeant in the leg. He was taken to a hospital and is in good condition.
