SALINA, Kan. (AP) - Salina police say a man has been arrested after abducting a teenager and firing several shots at officers.

Police said in a news release that the investigation began Friday when a 17-year-old boy reported that the 34-year-old suspect had come to his home and pointed a rifle at him. The Salina Journal reports that the suspect left with a 15-year-old girl before officers arrived.

Police say officers found the girl unharmed at the suspect’s home, but he wasn’t there. When the suspect returned, officers surrounded the home. Police say the suspect fired several shots, with one round striking a patrol car in which an officer was taking cover. Officers didn’t return fire.

The suspect was armed with two firearms when he left the home and was arrested after dropping them.
