OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) - Authorities in northeast Kansas have arrested a man suspected of firing a shot at a Johnson County sheriff’s deputy.

The deputy was unhurt in the shooting early Monday, which set off a massive search for more than 12 hours in the southern part of the county. The sheriff’s department says the suspect was arrested without incident several miles from where the confrontation occurred.

The deputy was investigating a reported break-in at a construction site when the suspect fired a shot before fleeing. Authorities said the deputy did not return fire.

Several schools in the Blue Valley district were placed on heightened alert during the search. Law enforcement officers patrolled bus stops during the morning.
