Suspect Dies after Police Chase Ends in Kansas City, Kansas

Associated Press - February 13, 2015 12:49 pm

A carjacking suspect is dead following a police chase that ended in Kansas City, Kansas.

Authorities say the chase began Friday morning after the suspect stole a van from a pest control worker in Bonner Springs. The chase went into Kansas City, Missouri, before ending after about 30 minutes when the vehicle drove through a fence near a church in Kansas City, Kansas.

Kansas City, Kansas, police spokeswoman Amber Hickerson says the driver at one point tried to hit a Kansas City, Missouri, police vehicle.

Hickerson says it is unclear if the suspect fired at officers or pointed his weapon at them but a Kansas Highway Patrol officer and three police officers shot him.

The pest control worker was not injured.

Further details were not immediately available.
