Wichita, Kansas – Three Wichita police officers were injured by a “possible explosion” after being dispatched to a residence on Saturday. Two officers have minor injuries and a third officer is in serious but stable condition. Surrounding agencies including the Wichita SWAT Team and Bomb Squad have been on the scene for most of the evening negotiating with the suspect.

Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay told reporters at the scene that it was unknown whether the explosion came from an improvised device or a weapon.

According to Ramsey, “Currently, the SWAT team and the bomb squad are on the scene and are dealing with what may be inside.”

The ATF’s Kansas City Field Division said it is working with local authorities to investigate the incident.
