COLBY -- A call to the Colby Police Department on Wednesday evening ended in a chase that led into Sherman County and ultimately the driver of the vehicle being shot by authorities.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation, called on to lead the investigation into the shooting, said in a statement Colby authorities were called at 9:47 p.m. to the Oasis Truck Stop where a man and woman allegedly were trying to sell sexual relations.

Officers eventually found a vehicle matching the description given by the caller at the Pilot Truck Stop in Colby. When officers checked the license plate on the vehicle, it indicated the truck had been stolen out of Texas.

That's when occupants of the vehicle fled from officers, leading them in a chase west of Colby into Sherman County.

Officers used stop-sticks to deflate tires on the vehicle, which finally stopped.

The male driver, according to the KBI, immediately exited the truck and pointed what appeared to be a handgun at law enforcement officers.

The officers immediately shot the suspect.

The man was taken to the Northwest Kansas Regional Medical Center in Goodland and later flown to Wichita for treatment.

The woman in the truck was arrested and is being held in the Thomas County Jail pending the filing of charges.
