PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kan. (AP) - Suburban Kansas City police say shots were fired and an officer was pinned against a tree during a two-state chase.

But The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1JVZoRR ) reports that no injuries were reported in the pursuit that began early Sunday in Prairie Village, Kansas. Capt. Wes Lovett says an officer spotted drug paraphernalia during a traffic stop and summoned backup. When the suspect was asked to exit his vehicle, he instead put the car in reverse and pinned the first officer. The backup officer fired at the suspect’s vehicle.

Lovett says the suspect led police on a 20-minute chase into nearby Kansas City, Missouri, and back into Kansas. The pursuit ended two blocks from the original traffic stop.

Lovett says the suspect is in custody and that charges are likely.
