KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City police officer working with a U.S. Marshal’s Office task force shot one person Wednesday, according to the highway patrol.

The shooting happened near 25th street and Jackson Avenue in Kansas City. The U.S. Marshal’s Office has asked the Missouri State Highway Patrol to lead the investigation.

MSHP said the U.S. Marshal’s Midwest Violence Fugitive Task Force had identified a suspect wanted for felony probation and parole violation and with a Jackson County warrant for felony assault with a weapon.

The man, identified as 23-year-old DeAnthony Tanner, was walking when officers attempted to arrest him, but he fled from the area.

Officials said during the police chase, Tanner attempted to pull a handgun from his waistband. MSHP said an officer with the task force fired his weapon, striking the suspect in the arm. Tanner then allegedly attempted to break into a home in the area, according to the highway patrol.

“Anytime there’s a firearm involved and there’s a chance that there’s civilians around it’s a danger to everybody,” MSHP Sgt. Bill Lowe said. “This individual has shown that he didn’t really care about that, so he could pose a danger to anybody.” 

After a brief struggle, officials said they took Tanner into custody, and medics took him to a local hospital. Officials said the suspect had non-life threatening injuries.

During the arrest, a member of the task force sustained minor injuries from broken glass. The officer was treated at the hospital.

“Apparently as they were struggling, there was some glass around the area and he got cut up pretty badly,” Lowe said.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the officer who shot Tanner is employed by the Kansas City Police Department and is assigned to the U.S. Marshal’s task force as a special deputy U.S. marshal. The highway patrol’s investigation is ongoing.
