KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A carjacking suspect has died after an exchange of gunfire with police in Kansas City, Kansas, authorities said.
Police did not identify the suspect who was killed but said he was a 25-year-old man.
Police said the armed carjacking happened Thursday in Kansas City, Kansas. The victim told police he was giving the suspect a ride when the man pulled a gun and demanded the vehicle, a Ford Expedition.
Officers in Kansas City, Missouri, on Sunday spotted a vehicle that matched the description and a pursuit began. The pursuit went into Kansas City, Kansas, and ended when the suspect’s vehicle crashed behind a convenience store.
Police said a review of footage from in-car and body cameras showed the suspect exited the vehicle with a handgun before turning and shooting at police. Officers returned fire and the man died at a hospital.
The shooting is being investigated by a multi-agency task force made up of representatives from Kansas City, Kansas, police, and the sheriff’s department and district attorney’s office in Wyandotte County, Kansas.
