KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A man who police say shot at officers in Kansas City, Kansas, faces drug and gun charges.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that 27-year-old Ashawntus McCambry is charged with one count each of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, unlawful possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking and of unlawful possession of a firearm following a felony conviction.

McCambry was initially charged for crimes that allegedly took place on Dec. 22. Police say he fired shots in the direction of officers as they served a search warrant at his residence.

McCambry surrendered, saying he didn't know they were police and that he thought he was being robbed.

It wasn't immediately clear if McCambry has an attorney.
