JOHNSON COUNTY — A shooting early Sunday at a convenience store left a suspect dead and a Kansas police officer hospitalized after an exchange of gunfire, according to Lenexa police.
Just after 7:30 a.m., police responded to a stolen vehicle call at the QuikTrip at 95th Street and Interstate 35, according to a media release.
Officers located that car and the suspect in the stolen vehicle struck one of Lenexa police department’s patrol vehicles and drove away.
Police pursued the suspect northbound on Interstate 35 until the suspects left the vehicle and ran to a QuikTrip in the 4700 Block of Lamar Avenue in Mission.
Police from multiple agencies were trying to arrest the suspects when gunfire broke out. A suspect later identified as 40-year-old Shannon Wayne Marshall of Ashland City, Tennessee was shot and killed and a Fairway Kansas police officer was shot and hospitalized.
The other suspect was arrested and later identified as 32-year-old Andrea Cothran of Portland Tennesee.
