At least three police officers were shot in Kansas City, Missouri, and the suspect was killed after a standoff with cops, officials said Sunday afternoon.

One of the three wounded officers was hit after police started to exchange gunfire with the unnamed suspect, The Kansas City Star reported.

Police told The Star that two undercover cops were working on an investigation at the Sky-Vu Motel, when they were shot around 12:15 p.m., and the suspect drove away from the scene, before ultimately entering the home.

Officers with rifles blocked off the area around where the shooting unfolded.
