WICHITA, Kansas, U.S. (AP) – Three Kansas police officers were shot and wounded when they entered a home to search, authorities said.
A modified shotgun was fired when officers entered the homes in Wichita at about 4 p.m. Saturday, the local law enforcement agency said.
Agents determined that no one was on the scene at the time, but the owners called the police suspecting someone was inside when they saw some open windows.
Agents surrounded the home for several hours Saturday before determining that no one was inside. Police are investigating the possibility that the weapon was set up as a trap to be activated once the officers entered.
On Sunday two police officers were still hospitalized, with injuries that were not considered serious. The third was treated and released on Sunday.
The investigation is being conducted by local Wichita police, the FBI, and the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
