(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The St. Joseph Police Department is investigating after a man was shot at as a vehicle fled the scene of an attempted break-in on the 3000 block of Kathleen Avenue in St. Joseph.

According to Captain Jeff Wilson with the police department, officers responded to the area in response to a possible shooting around 1:40 a.m. Monday.

Moving into the weekend, we will be keeping an eye on the potential for flooding rain and strong thunderstorms. On Saturday, the rain might hold off until the afternoon but will be widespread late Saturday and into Sunday. This is when the heaviest rain should fall. Expect rainfall totals to be anywhere from 2-4 inches. This could bring area streams and rivers to flood stage so make sure you are watching out for that.
