Two Kansas City police officers who thought they were being shot at from inside a van returned fire Thursday night.
Only later did police realize that the van was actually backfiring and the man inside was not armed. He was not injured by the shots fired by police.
The officers had been dispatched to investigate a call about shots fired, so they were already in defensive mode. But sheesh.
Apparently, they shot the windows out of their own car during the “shootout.”
