KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City police say officers shot and injured a man during a domestic disturbance.

Spokesman Darin Snapp says officers called to a home in northern Kansas City early Wednesday found a woman on the ground in the front yard and her husband standing over her with a rifle. He says the woman had already been shot in the leg and the man appeared to be ready to shoot her again.

Snapp told KCTV5 (http://bit.ly/1DdAueU ) that when the man held the rifle as if he was going to shoot, two officers fired, hitting him in the side.

The man and his wife were taken to a hospital. Both are expected to survive.

Two children in the home, ages 6 and 10, were asleep during the confrontation.

No officers were hurt.
