KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Police are investigating after an attempted burglary turned into a wild chase with gunfire and ended in an early-morning crash.

The Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department said the incident began in western Wyandotte County when a man confronted two people who were allegedly breaking into his car.

The victim chased after the pair as they left the area.

Investigators said the suspects were able to get behind the victim near N. 110th Street and State Avenue in KCK. Officers said the suspects began shooting at the victim.

A short time later, officers found the suspects near N. 75th Place and State Avenue and tried to stop their car. The suspects took off, and officers pursued them.

The chase crossed state lines into Missouri. Police said the driver lost control of the car on Interstate 70 near Prospect Avenue around 3 a.m. The car rolled, and both people inside were ejected.

Investigators said both suspects were injured in the crash and taken to the hospital.

Now, a broken fence and tire marks show how the high-speed chase ended overnight.

Back in KCK’s Westlake neighborhood, resident Cassie Booth-Johnson saw doorbell camera footage of the alleged car break-ins.

“It looks like a woman is going over checking the door of my neighbor’s car and then comes over to ours and then you see that she’s checking to see if their moving,” Booth-Johnson said.

The whole incident was a shock to her neighborhood.

“I hadn’t experienced anything like that before,” Booth-Johnson said.

“It happens, just not here in our neighborhood usually,” resident Carolyn Whisner said.

Kansas City, Kansas, police said an investigation into the break-in, chase and crash is underway.
