KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A van carrying a person of interest in a Kansas killing led officers on a wild chase as the driver weaved through the wrong lanes of an interstate while sometimes going 100 mph.

Kansas City, Missouri police said the chase began Thursday near Smithville and continued until it spun out of control on Interstate 35 in northern Kansas City. Police spokeswoman Capt. Stacey Graves says the driver was shot but his injuries were not life-threatening.

A woman who was in the van surrendered.

Graves said the driver intentionally drove toward oncoming cars and drove other vehicles off the road. No one else was injured.

Kansas City, Kansas, police said the man is a person of interest in the death of a man who was found shot inside a pickup truck early Thursday.
