“Phillip Ransom thought he had trouble Thursday night when his old van broke down on the side of the road, booming out backfires,” kansascity.com reports. “Two Kansas City police officers, mistaking the van’s backfires for gunshots, began firing at it. Fortunately he was not hit. At least three bullets hit the van. Ransom said he did not know how many shots were fired. ‘I wasn’t counting,’ he said. ‘But it sounded like a lot.’ A department spokesman confirmed that Ransom was unarmed and said the officers have been placed on administrative leave while the incident is investigated.”
