Suspect fatally shot after stabbing guard

A security guard, stabbed by a shoplifting suspect, fatally shot the man tonight at a busy Brookside intersection, police said.

The guard’s injuries were not considered life-threatening.

The guard chased the suspect about two blocks, to 63rd Street and Wornall Road. The suspect stabbed the guard in the upper body, and the guard then shot the suspect.

The suspect was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The guard also was taken to a hospital.
