KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A stabbing that happened in the 800 block of N. 70th Street in KCK led to a chase that crossed the state line on Thursday night. The victim reportedly suffered multiple stab wounds, but is expected to survive.
Four stabbing suspects were later caught at Emanuel Cleaver Boulevard and Prospect in KCMO and arrested. During the chase, police say the suspects hit a squad car at 30th and Indiana.
The chase began at about 7:30 p.m. when there was a call from KCK police to KCMO for assistance with the pursuit of aggravated assault suspects. Three KCK cars were involved in the chase, and a police helicopter flew overhead.
The suspects drove a car down by Brush Creek and attempted to turn around towards the road, but got stuck in mud. KCK officers were joined by 2 KCMO officers when the driver of the car attempted to strike one of the officers. A KCMO officer fired one round at the vehicle, but no injuries were reported. The two men and two women then gave up and were taken into custody.
The officer who fired their weapon is now on administrative leave pending an investigation into the incident, which is routine in officer-involved shootings. FOX 4 will update this story with charges against the suspects once that information is released.
