LIBERTY, MO (KCTV) – The Missouri Highway Patrol is investigating after a police pursuit turned into a shooting.

The chase started in Independence following an attempted traffic stop before heading north.

When the chase got to Liberty, local officers deployed stop strips, deflating the suspect's truck's tires when they were hit by spikes and stopping the truck near Leonard ad Pine Streets.

The suspect has been identified as Lance A. Bowman, 30, from Independence, MO. He remains hospitalized. 

At that point, troopers said Bowman got out of the vehicle with a gun, leading an Independence officer to shoot the suspect.
