Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) is currently conducting an investigation into an officer-involved shooting that took place early Monday morning at an apartment complex in Kansas City, Kansas. The request for investigation came from the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department (KCKPD) on December 4th at approximately 3:20 a.m. Responding to the request, KBI agents and the Crime Scene Response Team arrived at the scene to begin their investigation.

According to preliminary information, the incident occurred around 2:55 a.m. when a concerned citizen called 911 to report shots being fired outside in the parking lot of an apartment complex located near 61st St. and Leavenworth Rd. Upon arrival, the KCKPD officers noticed a male individual leaning out of a second-floor window armed with a rifle. The man, identified as 21-year-old Dominic A. M. V. Lee from Kansas City, Kansas, aimed the rifle at one of the responding officers. In response, the officer fired a single round, striking Lee in the shoulder.

Following the shooting, the officers entered the apartment and apprehended Lee without any further incidents. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) arrived at the scene and transported Lee to a local hospital in Kansas City for treatment of his injuries. Thankfully, no officers were harmed during the incident.

After being released from the hospital earlier today, Lee was immediately arrested on a warrant for aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer. At approximately 4:50 p.m., he was booked into the Wyandotte County Jail. It is important to note that all suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

The investigation into this incident is still ongoing, with authorities working diligently to gather more information and evidence. The KBI and the KCKPD will continue to collaborate to ensure a thorough examination of the events leading up to the officer-involved shooting.
