2 schools locked down during police chase

From The Star: Two suspects were caught shortly after 9 a.m. today during a police chase that included gunshots and the brief lockdown of two Raytown elementary schools.

Two other suspects remained at large at 11 a.m. Police were seeking them in a silver Buick Lucerne with Kansas license plates that was stolen in Lee’s Summit. Independence police spokesman Tom Gentry said the chase commenced after officers began following the stolen car and tried to stop it. Officers arrested a man and a woman who bailed out near Norfleet Road and 61st Street. Independence officers started the chase, and Kansas City officers took over.

They gave up when speeds became dangerous, Gentry said. One officer was nearly hit when the speeding car, which had turned into the parking lot at Norfleet Elementary School, exited and apparently took aim at the officer who had stopped in the school driveway.
