Three Dead in Kansas City Mall Shooting

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A gunman shot a police officer, then opened fire in a parking lot and a mall Sunday, authorities said. By the time the violence was over, he and two other people were dead.

A police officer was shot by a gunman who then opened fire in a parking lot and a mall Sunday, killing himself and two others.

Authorities began tracking the gunman after they went to a woman's house, only to find her dead and her car missing.

An officer spotted the car later that day and attempted to pull the gunman over. The gunman shot the officer in the arm, and drove off. The car was later spotted at the mall, where the gunman fatally wounded two people and injured others when he fired more shots inside of the mall.

It is not certain if the gunman was killed by policemen, authorities told the Associated Press.
