KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Police have charged a man after they say he shot at two officers in a marked police department vehicle Saturday night.

Isaiah D. Jackson, 26, of Kansas City is charged with two counts of first-degree assault, three counts of armed criminal actions and one count unlawful use of a weapon.

According to court records, the Kansas City Police Department officers were in a marked patrol vehicle near Blue Parkway and Kensington Avenue when the officers reported hearing loud gunshots. The rear passenger window of the patrol vehicle broke out. One officer believed he had been shot because he felt something hit the back of his head. They began to pursue a suspect vehicle at a high rate of speed.

Jackson told police he was driving in the area and said he had fired a weapon in the air minutes before passing a marked police car. But video from cameras in the area showed the suspect vehicle slowing to the same rate of speed as the police vehicle and hitting his brakes at about the time as the police vehicle's brakes are hit.

Police say Jackson drove quickly from the area but was taken into custody a short time later.

Jackson is being held on a bond of $100,000 cash.
