Leawood Police are investigating after shots were fired on a traffic stop.

Police say an officer stopped a white 2005 Ford Mustang on the exit ramp from eastbound Interstate 435 to State Line Road at 3:17 a.m.. While on that traffic stop a second vehicle, a Chevrolet Malibu, pulled in front of the Mustang. The officer walked up to the Malibu to see why they had stopped, at that time a second officer had arrived on scene and witnessed a subject in the Mustang toss a gun out of the window. That officer alerted the first officer, to the gun, who then saw the Mustang driving towards him. The officer opened fire on the fleeing Mustang. Police are not releasing how many shots were fired at the vehicle as this is a continuing investigation.

It was initially not known if the driver of the vehicle was struck. Just before 7 a.m., Police say that a male matching the description of the Mustang's driver has shown up at Truman Medical Center, near 23rd and Holmes in Kansas City, Missouri, with a gunshot wound. This man has been identified as, 32-year-old, Adrian M. Hopper of Wichita, Kansas. Hopper remains in an area hospital and is expected to survive his injuries. The 2005 Ford Mustang was located by Police in Grandview, Missouri.

No other injuries were reported. The officer who fired the shots has been placed on routine administrative leave while the incident is investigated.
