KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say officers have shot and wounded three suspects during an exchange of gunfire in Kansas City, Kansas.

Police officer Cameron Morgan says the suspects were taken to a hospital with minor injuries Monday night. No officers were hurt. Morgan says the shooting happened during a traffic stop that was part of a “violent crime investigation.” A fourth person in the suspect’s vehicle wasn’t shot.

Morgan provided no details on the investigation or what led up to the shooting. He says a Kansas City, Kansas, officer who also is an FBI task force officer was involved.

After the shooting, police pursued a vehicle into Kansas City, Missouri. Police initially suspected the vehicle’s occupants of possible ties to the shooting but said later that they aren’t believed to be directly involved.
