SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) - Two men have been arrested in suburban Kansas City after shots were fired at an officer in an unmarked vehicle.

Shawnee police said in a news release that no one was hurt in Wednesday night’s shooting. The shooting happened while an officer who was conducting surveillance followed a vehicle from Lenexa to nearby Shawnee.

The news release said the Lenexa officer tried to arrange for a marked police vehicle to intercept the suspect vehicle. But before that could happen, two people in the suspect vehicle are accused of shooting at the officer.

Police said several police officers responded, and the suspect vehicle was disabled with a tire-deflation device. The two suspects are jailed in Johnson County.
