KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 46-year-old Kansas man was shot and wounded by a police officer Saturday after he brandished a gun outside a convenience store.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation said the 46-year-old man from Dodge City was shot Saturday afternoon outside a Kwik Shop in Andover in south-central Kansas. Authorities said the man was shot by an Andover police officer after a verbal exchange between officers and the man.

The suspect fled after he was shot, but he was arrested at a nearby business following a short foot chase.

The man sustained serious injuries but they are not believed to be life-threatening. He was taken to a Wichita hospital for treatment.
