KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police canvassed the area in the 11400 block of Corrington in Kansas City, Mo., early Friday morning, but were unable to locate the suspect who broke into a home at about 4:00 a.m., and while doing so reportedly yelled ‘KCPD’, as if he were an officer in the Kansas City Police Department.

According to the police report, the victim told officers he heard the front window of his house shatter.  He told them he went to check it and saw a man standing outside the window. The resident says he opened the front door and the suspect pointed a gun at him.  The victim says he closed and locked the door and the suspect began trying to kick in the front door,  yelling ‘KCPD.’

When the suspect got through the door, the resident says he retrieved his firearm and fired at the suspect, who ran off. The resident was unsure if he shot the suspect.

Police have not released a description.
