CHANUTE, Kan. — A man steals an ambulance out of a Walmart parking lot and police chase after him, firing bullets at the suspect.

A brief chase followed before the ambulance stopped. Police detained Jones. He went to a Wichita hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
No one else was hurt in the confrontation.
