We are told that two men are now in custody following the incident. Two infants were effected, but only one was shot.
“It is horrible that an infant was involved and injured in this incident,” Capt. Tye Grant of the Kansas City Police Department said in an interview with local KCTV 5. “No child ever should be placed in such a dangerous situation.”
Grant said he doesn’t know how long the officer has been with the department, but he says that he has been placed on paid administrative leave.
The officer is maintaining that the collision was “on purpose” and describes it as being “rammed.”
That may or may not be true. We simply don’t know at this point. What we do know is that when the officer opened fire, there was no vehicle coming towards him.
