    Kansas City, Kan., police officer shot; in critical condition
    An officer has been shot at 22nd and Haskell in Kansas City, Kan. and by 2:45 p.m. one person was in custody and police had detained another person.

    Kansas City, Kan., Police Chief Terry Zeigler tweeted at 2:02 p.m., “We have an officer shot at 22nd & Haskell. Start prayers, unknown condition.”

    The officer was in critical condition.

    Multiple suspects ran from the scene, according to police radio traffic.

    Officer T.J. Tomasic said police responded to disturbance call around 1:30 p.m. Police say they were responding to a call for help from a person being shot at by several people in a vehicle.

    Police followed leads to 22nd and Haskell/Greeley area. Thirty minutes later, a call came in of officer shot.

    Police have blocked off 18th Street north of Parallel until 24th Street in their search for suspects.

    Police swarmed the area with dozens of officers, some with rifles. Several police were taking cover behind cars at 16th and Quindaro. A woman at a house there came out of a home with her hands up. Several officers were kneeling down in the street with their guns drawn.

    The woman who came out walked up to an officer who was holding a ballistic shield. She stood and talked with the officers. Then she walked away from the officers about 10 feet away toward the home and appeared to be yelling to someone in the house. She told police an 8-year-old and 3-year-old in the home.

    About 45 minutes later, two small children came out of the house and went to the woman. Police moved them out of the way.

    This is the second police officer shot in KCK this year. The detective, Brad Lancaster, 39, was a nine-year veteran of the Kansas City, Kan., Police Department was shot and killed May 9.

    Police were beginning to gather at the hospital where the officer was taken. One officer walked out to her car in tears.

    This is a developing story. We are updating as we get information.

    ...if you consider the body count from known deliberate attacks id have to say theyre on the rise but there are a significant number of police shot every year, the sniper attacks make this year a little different.

    2013 - 102
    2014 - 126
    2015 - 42

    The other side doesn't like bringing up stats because you can just throw stats their way, like how more whites were killed in 2015 than blacks by the hands of cops. And then it ends up in this cluster fuck where they usually try to shout over you in anger.
