KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas City, Kansas, man shot and wounded by police after allegedly pointing a shotgun at officers is accused of assault.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/257xEb0 ) reports that Wyandotte County prosecutors have charged 38-year-old Thomas Torrence with seven counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer. He’s also charged with single counts of aggravated assault and criminal damage to property.

Police say Torrence was wounded in the leg during the confrontation early Saturday involving officers who responded to a report of a domestic disturbance.

The newspaper says jail records showed that Torrence remained hospitalized as of Monday afternoon.

It was not immediately clear Monday if Torrence has an attorney.
