Man exchanges shots with Overland Park police

Suspect has died from his injuries

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) - Overland Park police say a man shot by officers during a confrontation at an apartment complex has died.

Spokesman John Lacy said 43-year-old Charles Webb died Friday after being shot earlier in the day.

No police were injured.

Authorities were called to the apartment complex where a man and woman were arguing. Police say when the woman ran, the man began firing at random outside the apartment complex.

Lacy says Webb fired several shots at officers when they arrived at the scene and two officers fired back, hitting him. Webb died later at a hospital.

The two officers were placed on paid administrative leave during the investigation.

The woman involved in the earlier dispute was not injured.
