VIDEO: 5-Year-Old Girl Killed in Police Shootout

Authorities investigating the shooting death of a girl after a police chase said Saturday that they had found no evidence she was killed by gunfire from police.

The investigation into the shootout with a 30-year-old man and the death of Cadence Harris, 5, is "nowhere near concluded," said Mark Malick, special agent in charge of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation told the Kansas City Star.

The man, who was wounded by police, was taken to a Kansas City hospital where he was treated for injuries considered serious but not life-threatening, said Patrick Kitchens, Leavenworth police chief.

"It is a fairly complicated investigation," Kitchens said. "There is a lot of information we are trying to sort through."

The police chief said the man got out of the car and exchanged gunfire with two Leavenworth officers. Kitchens said Friday night that authorities thought the man fired the shot that killed the girl, but Kitchens said Saturday that was still being investigated. Video cameras from police cars captured part of the incident.
