A shooting victim ended up going to jail after he allegedly battered police officers and threatened a nurse, a Leavenworth Police Department spokesman said.

The incident was reported at 5:52 p.m. Tuesday in the 700 block of Pottawatomie Street.

Police received a report of a loud argument followed by two or three gunshots, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

Responding officers met with a 46-year-old man with a gunshot wound in his left arm. Nicodemus said the officers attempted to provide first aid and investigate the shooting.

“He was extremely uncooperative with the officers,” Nicodemus said.

The man allegedly kicked several officers.

The officers eventually were able to talk the man into going to the hospital. He was transported by Leavenworth County EMS to Saint Luke’s Cushing Hospital.

“At the hospital, he threatened one of the nurses,” Nicodemus said.

The man also is alleged to have spat on a police officer while at the hospital.

After he was medically cleared to leave the hospital, the man was taken into custody.

He was arrested for allegations of battery of a law enforcement officer, obstruction and making a criminal threat.

Nicodemus said police were unable to find witnesses to the shooting or obtain the man’s version of what happened.

The deputy chief said police will continue to investigate the shooting if they receive additional information or are able to reinterview the man.
