Murder suspect killed, 3 officers wounded in Kansas City gunfight

A shootout in Kansas City left three police officers wounded in two locations and a murder suspect dead on Sunday, police said.

The shooting began at a motel where undercover and tactical officers found the suspect, who was wanted in connection with the July 6 killing of a college student, said Jake Becchina of the Kansas City Police Department. The suspect opened fire, striking two officers.

Chicago police release body camera footage of man killed by officers

The man Chicago police shot and killed Saturday appeared to be reaching for a gun in his waistband, according to body camera footage released by the department on Sunday.

Chicago police released two versions of the same video. One of the versions showed the events in real time and the other was in slow motion. Both versions showed four officers approaching Harith Augustus, 37. In the video, officers try to grab Augustus, who pushes the officers' arms away and flails his arms. Augustus then rolls over the hood of a police vehicle and appears to reach to the right side of his waistband, where police say they saw a gun.
