LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas police chief says it's unclear who fired the shot that killed a young Kansas girl at the end of a high-speed chase that started after she was reported to be abducted.
Leavenworth Police Chief Pat Kitchens says initial reports might be inaccurate. Those reports said a 30-year-old man who took Cadence Harris from her home fired the shot that killed the girl.
Platte County, Missouri, police notified Leavenworth police at 7:30 p.m. Friday they were in pursuit of a man suspected of abducting a child.
The Kansas City Star reports the chase crossed the Missouri River into Leavenworth, where it ended at a construction site.
The Leavenworth police chief says the man was wounded in a shootout with police and was taken to a Kansas City hospital with non-life-threatening wounds.
