ELLSWORTH, Kan. — Authorities say a person has been shot and wounded during a law enforcement chase in central Kansas.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation said in a news release Friday that the agency was contacted Thursday night and asked to assist in the investigation of the Ellsworth County shooting. The release says three officers from two jurisdictions fired their weapons during a chase with a possibly armed person.

The person who was wounded was flown to a Wichita hospital and is in stable condition. No law enforcement officers were injured.

The release says the investigation was ongoing and that no other information would be released. The KBI said additional questions should be directed to the Ellsworth County prosecutor, whose phone repeatedly rang unanswered.
