Shooting victims lead police on vehicle chase while suspect stays behind

KENNETT, MO (KAIT) – No one was injured during a shooting in Kennett overnight, but officers are trying to find out why the victims led them on a short chase.

According to Kennett Police Lieutenant Tim Trowbridge, the shooting happened near Huck's Food & Fuel on St. Francis Street around 10:30 Monday. He said a man shot into a car from his front porch as the car drove away.

As investigators were talking to the man who fired shots and witnesses, other members of the police force found the victims who led them on a short chase, said Trowbridge. He went on to say that the victims eventually left their car and fled on foot, but the pursuing officers were unable to catch them.

Police are still trying to find out what exactly happened and said the man who fired shots will likely face first-degree assault charges.

As far as police know, no one was injured during the shooting, and they plan to release more information later Tuesday.

No names have been released pending the investigation.
