Authorities say a suspect was shot and wounded by a law enforcement officer after a chase in central Kansas.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says the man was shot Tuesday along Kansas 96 near Rush Center.

The shooting happened during a chase that began after a Ness County Sheriff’s Deputy tried to stop a vehicle.

A male suspect was taken to a hospital.  His name and condition were not released.

No deputies were hurt, the KBI said.  No further information was released.
