According to a Lenexa police spokesperson, around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, officers were chasing Greenhalgh in a stolen vehicle. The 20-year-old wouldn’t cooperate with officers and hit three police cars near 87th and Maurer Road, police said.

That’s when an officer shot at Greenhalgh’s vehicle, injuring him.

The suspect then drove away from the scene, and the chase ended near West 81st Place and Bittersweet Drive when Greenhalgh surrendered.

Lenexa police said officers performed life-saving measures on the suspect, who was taken to the hospital with a critical gunshot wound.

Three officers were taken to the hospital for observation, but Lenexa police said none of them suffered serious injuries.

Greenhalgh is currently in police custody, and the incident is being investigated by the Johnson County Officer-Involved Shooting Investigation Team.
