INDEPENDENCE, MO (KCTV) -

Police say they were forced to shoot a man Sunday at an Independence motel.

Independence police were called at 11:45 a.m. to the Econo Lodge, located 13712 E. 42nd Terrace South near the Truman Sports Complex, in Independence on a possible burglary.

When officers got there, shots were fired. 

The suspects shot at the officers, but no one was hit.  Officers fired back, hitting one of the suspects.  Both suspects are currently in police custody.

Initial reports indicated that an officer may have been shot, but those reports turned out to be unfounded.

Police are still investigating the shooting and what happened before they got to the motel.

The officers involved in Sunday's shooting will be placed on paid leave while the department investigates what happened.
