Three men wounded in a shootout with FBI and Kansas City, Kan., police officers last week are now facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against a police officer.
The Wyandotte County District Attorney’s Office filed the charges against Jason Trevillion, 32, Ernest Jones, 27, and Arthur Mitchell, 25.
Police said a gun battle broke out when a coalition of officers in the FBI’s Violent Crimes Task Force attempted to stop a car in the 1300 block of Haskell Avenue around 10:15 p.m. Nov. 6.
Multiple officers opened fire and three people in the car suffered non-life-threatening injuries. No officers were injured. Police did not specify how many officers fired on the car, saying the incident remains under investigation.
