Suspect flees following shooting and pursuit

(KAIR)--A pursuit which began with a “shots fired” call received by Atchison Police, ends with the suspect on the run.

According to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, officers responded to the 500 block of Laramie Street to investigate following the call around 8:00 Sunday night.
During the investigation, officers located a parked vehicle in that area that had been struck by a bullet, while an officer on patrol spotted a speeding, northbound vehicle on 6th Street, near Harper Drive.

An attempt to stop the vehicle was not successful, with the driver fleeing from the officer, leading to the pursuit that ended in Doniphan County. It was there that the vehicle was located stuck on a muddy road. The driver had, according to Wilson, “fled on foot into the darkness.”

Local area law enforcement, including Atchison and Doniphan Counties, joined in a search for the suspect, but the driver was not located.

Wilson said it’s believed the vehicle was involved with the shooting.

Several firearms, ammunition, and spent shell casings have been recovered and the investigation is ongoing.
