JOHNSON COUNTY, KS (KCTV) -

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who ran away from police following a chase and is on the loose.

At about 1:00 a.m. on Saturday, officers with the Wellsville Police Department chased a stolen vehicle on northbound I-35 into Johnson County.

The vehicle was stolen shortly before the pursuit from Casey's General Store at 334 N. Main St in Ottawa. 

Deputies from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office deployed stop sticks by 1:07 a.m., which brought the vehicle to a stop near I-35 and Lone Elm Road.

Once the vehicle stopped, the driver got out of the vehicle and ran away. Soon after that, deputies heard a single shot in the area.

The driver is being identified as a balding white man who is about 30 years old. He was wearing a black tank top and jeans.

The authorities searched for the man in that area until 8 a.m. but were unable to find him.

He should be considered armed and dangerous. If you see him, do not approach him and call the authorities.
