Chase Ends With Church Crash

Associated Press - February 25, 2016 12:03 pm

RAYTOWN, Mo. (AP) – ┬áPolice say a man held a sword to the necks of two people at a Missouri gas station before leading officers on a slow-speed chase that ended when the U-Haul he was driving crashed into a suburban Kansas City church.

Raytown police received a report at 4:19 a.m. Thursday of a man brandishing a sword. He fled in a U-Haul and led officers on a 40-minute chase that ended when he crashed into a Raytown church.

Police say the man got out of the truck and was shot with a stun gun after failing to comply with officers’ orders.

He was found carrying 20 weapons, including knives, a sword and a blowgun.

Police say a woman and four children found in the cab of the truck were family members.
