Detective who was shot this morning should be OK

At 6:32 a.m. today, patrol officers were called to the Greyhound bus station at 11th and Troost on an assist-the-officer call.

Upon arrival, officers contacted detectives who were at the bus station. The detectives advised they had tried to stop a man who was acting suspicious. After contacting the man, a struggle ensued. During the struggle, the suspect's gun went off and struck one of the detectives in the leg. The suspect was taken into custody and was found to have two guns on him when stopped by detectives.

The detective who was shot was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
