Woman wanted in 2017 KCK homicide, 2 others lead police on high-speed chase across state lines

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — A woman wanted in connection with a 2017 KCK homicide and two others led police on a high-speed chase Wednesday afternoon, officials say.

A police spokesman said the chase started in KCMO. Officers used a tire deflation device to stop the car in KCK. There was minor damage to a patrol car, officials said, but no one was injured.

Two women and a man were taken into custody. One of those women was wanted in connection with the death of 29-year-old Kevin Fowler on Aug. 30. Fowler was killed in a shooting in the 1400 block of North 75th Drive in KCK, police said.

Another suspect, Zachary Barnes, was arrested in September south of the small Republican County town of Cuba, Kansas, and charged with second-degree murder. The search for Barnes caused several schools and public agencies to be placed on lockdown in two other towns in the area, which is near the Nebraska border.
