An officer-involved shooting was reported early Tuesday evening.
Kansas City, MO, police Chief Darryl Forte tweeted that he and other police were en route to the shooting at East Ninth Street and Cypress Avenue.
The shooting happened about 4:15 p.m.
According to police, officers were on patrol when they saw a crash involving a black pickup and a maroon minivan. When the officers pulled up to help, the driver of the minivan drove off.
The driver did pull over when officers turned on their lights and sirens, but the driver then put the van in reverse and rammed into the officers' car. According to police, the officers got out and tried to get the driver out when he started driving forward.
When one of the officers started going back to the police car, the suspect then put the minivan into reverse again. Fearing for his partner's safety, the other officer fired at least two shots at the minivan and hit the suspect once.
The suspect suffered a minor gunshot injury.
Forte said no officers were physically injured in the incident.
