KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A suspect has been shot and killed after a law enforcement pursuit in Kansas City.

FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton says the chase started after authorities went to a home with a search warrant Wednesday. She said the warrant was part of an investigation involving the FBI, local police and the U.S. Marshal’s office.

She said two people matching the suspects’ descriptions fled in a vehicle and refused to stop. One suspect got out of the vehicle and ran, but was arrested shortly afterward.

Patton says the car chase ended on Interstate 35 after the suspect’s vehicle became disabled, and the driver got out of the vehicle armed with a weapon. She says shots were fired, killing the suspect. Patton said it wasn’t immediately clear if the suspect fired shots.
