WICHITA, Kan. — Wichita police say an officer shot and injured a robbery suspect during a pursuit.

Deputy Chief Gavin Seiler tells the Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/2d9xxnN ) police received a report of a robbery at a general store just after 5 p.m. Sunday.

The suspect fled and officers pursued him. According to Seiler, while at an intersection, the man ran from his vehicle and tried to get into others that were stopped and waiting for a light to change.

Seiler says “shots were fired” while the suspect was in the back seat of another person’s vehicle. The suspect was struck, taken into custody and transported to a hospital, where he was in stable condition. No one else was hurt.

Police are investigating whether the suspect was armed. More information was expected to be released Monday.
