WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Police in Wichita say a man killed in a weekend shootout with officers was associated with a local gang and had outstanding warrants in a neighboring county.

Authorities on Monday identified the man as 18-year-old Jeffery Holden. The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1svAyNc ) he had been listed as a missing person in the Kansas City area.

The shootout occurred shortly after 6:30 a.m. Sunday as police responded to multiple reports of a man firing at houses and passers-by.

Police said Holden pinned one officer in his car with continuous gunfire, then shot at other officers as they arrived. Authorities said Holden fired simultaneously with two handguns.

He was ultimately shot and killed outside a house.

Police said Holden was the subject of outstanding warrants in Cowley County.
