GYPSUM, Kan. (AP) -- A bank robbery suspect has been captured in central Kansas after a chase that ended with him exchanging gunfire with a trooper.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the chase started Tuesday night in Saline County. After the suspect crashed his vehicle near the town of Gypsum, he and the trooper pursuing him fired their weapons. The suspect then fled on foot.

He was caught later in the evening after a search that involved aircraft, police dogs and multiple law enforcement agencies.

Authorities suspect that earlier Tuesday, the man walked into the First Bank of Chase, showed a weapon and demanded money. Chase is a town of 500 people west of Lyons on U.S. Highway 56.
