VIDEO: Kansas Officers Fired On in Ambush, No Injuries

Police and the Kansas City, KS, community are still reeling from the death of Capt. Robert Melton last week but just days later, some Kansas City police officers were forced to take cover after a blaze of gunfire was aimed at them.

It happened about 11:55 p.m. Sunday at Quincy and Thompson avenues. Police said the officers were on a call for service in the area when someone began firing shots at them.

None of the officers were hurt, KCTV5 reports.

It wasn't the only time someone has taken aim at police since Melton's death.

Lenexa, KS, police say twice since then, someone may have taken shots at their officers. Both situations involved a motorcycle officer who was out helping with duties surrounding the shooting death of Melton.
