The man shot by Lee's Summit police officers late Friday remained in serious but stable condition Monday, a police spokesperson said.
The man had been shot after officers responded to Summit Ridge Apartments on NE Tudor Road at about 11:30 p.m., to check on the welfare of a suicidal man who lives on a ground-floor apartment.
According to police, officers evacuated nearby residents while trying to make phone contact with the man, who was alone in the apartment. During this attempt the man fired a round through the door and came out of his apartment with a weapon in his hands.
The man ignored verbal commands to drop the weapon, and officers hit him with multiple less-lethal bean bag rounds. He continued to move toward officers with the weapon in hand and was subsequently hit with gunfire. Officers gave him first aid, and the man was taken to the hospital.
The three officers involved have been placed on administrative leave, which is routine policy while Lee's Summit police continue their investigation. The Jackson County Prosecutor's Office will then review the case.
