KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A carjacking suspect has died after he was shot by police following a chase.

Authorities say the suspect stole a van Friday morning from a pest control worker in Bonner Springs, Kansas. The suspect then led police on a chase into Kansas City, Missouri, before ending in Kansas City, Kansas, after about 30 minutes when the vehicle drove through a fence.

Kansas City, Kansas, police spokeswoman Amber Hickerson says the driver tried to hit a Kansas City, Missouri, police vehicle.

Hickerson says it is unclear whether the suspect fired at officers or only pointed his weapon at them. A Kansas Highway Patrol officer and three police officers shot him.

The pest control worker was not injured.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is looking into the shooting.
