Authorities say a man has died after a Wichita traffic stop led to a shooting and crash.

Lt. Lin Dehning of the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office says shots were fired after a deputy stopped a driver early Thursday. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the suspect or the deputy fired the shots. Dehning says there are no other suspects.

After the shots were fired, the vehicle left and struck a house a short time later. The man was taken to a hospital where he died.

No other information was immediately available. Authorities are planning a media briefing later Thursday to release more details.
