Police shot and wounded a suspect in an armed stand-off Friday afternoon in east Kansas City.
The man, reportedly wanted on an arrest warrant from Wichita, was shot in the hand after running out of a house holding a gun, police said.
No one else was injured. An ambulance took the man to a hospital.
The incident began late Friday morning when officers were called to the 2900 block of Wallace Avenue after someone reported that a man armed with a knife was trying to break out car windows and get into a house. When police arrived, they were told that the man had entered the house of a relative.
Officers had surrounded the house for about an hour before the man came outside and the shooting occurred.
