* Caught on Tape-Brave Kansas City Police Officers Involved in Shootout-Watch Video Here

Here is an example of the dangers police officers face each day they go to work. At about 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 6, 2009, police responded to a non-injury, one-vehicle car crash near 113th Street and Sycamore Terrace in south Kansas City. They found out the driver had walked away about 100 yards into nearby Isler Park. One officer drove into the park to contact the man, and as you will see in these videos from police car dash-cams, the man suddenly turned and started firing shots at the officer. The officer fell to the ground behind his patrol car door to avoid being hit. At that time, a second officer arrived and ran to assist the first officer, risking being shot himself. The officers soon returned fire on the suspect, who continued to point a gun at them even after he had been shot and fallen to the ground. The suspect died from the return shots from the officers. Miraculously, neither of the officers was injured.
