Report of Law Officer Shot Prompts Extensive Clay County MO Police Tactical Operation

Right now- about a mile-square area straddling the KC-MO corporate limits in Clay county is crawling with law officers looking for a gunman that initially thought to have shot a female law enforcement officer.

It reportedly all started before 1:30 am Sunday morning during a vehicle pursuit northwest of Liberty.

Near Northeast 115th and Fishing River Road- the male driver of the black GMC Tahoe being pursued allegedly shot at the chasing officer.

For more than 15 minutes- it was reported the female deputy had been shot in the head.

Later examination by a paramedic and doctors at a hospital did not located any gunshot wound- and the patient had reportedly been up walking around after the reported shooting. 

The suspect drove away- but was spotted at 1:40 am on M-291 approaching North Eastern.

The lone deputy kept his distance as the suspect turned north on North Eastern and drove north- as the suspect doused the Tahoe's lights.

At 1:43 am- the suspect stops near Northeast 127th Street- gets out and runs west into farm fields and wooded areas in the area of the WHB radio towers.

As he runs- the suspect- "a white male about 5-foot 11-inches tall- 200 pounds- wearing a black leather coat with a white stripe and blue jeans-" turns and fires two shots that missed the nearby deputy.  

At 2:29 am- KC-MO Police- one of more than a half-dozen law agencies who rushed to assist that officer- calls a tactical "Operation-100."

Roadways along the edges of the perimeter (see red lines on map) were closed to traffic through 6 am Sunday morning as the suspect remained at-large.

There was a shooting. The female passenger in the vehicle was shot by a clay county police officer in the back of her head. The officer wasnt in any danger. He aimed at the vehicle as it was driving off and of all places to shoot, he shot at the PASSENGERS HEAD.
The driver of the vehicle never fired any shots and did not have a gun.
