CSW BREAKING: Shooting Reported at an Independence MO Motel

The call came in at 11:11 a.m.- a reported shooting victim at the "Red Roof Inn" motel in the 13700 block of East 42nd Terrace- near the intersection of I-70 and Noland Road.

According to AMR-EMS reports- the victim is enroute to a nearby hospital.

AMR reports that victim is "an approximately 36-year-old male-" gunshot wounds to "his right forearm and right chest" and he's in critical condition.

Independence Police in a prepared media statement says a U.S. Marshal was serving a warrant to a man who had a room at the motel.

The Marshal- reportedly being "backed-up" by the IPD- knocked on the door of the man's ("victim") room and the suspect started firing a gun at the door.

Uninjured by the man's shots- the U.S. Marshal reportedly returned fire- striking the man twice (as noted in the med report).
