A Fairway, KS, police officer has died after suffering critical wounds during a Sunday morning shootout at a QuikTrip gas station and convenience store.
Officer Jonah Oswald, 29, died Monday. He had been with the Fairway Police Department four years, KCUR reports.
The incident began when Lenexa police responded to reports of a stolen car Sunday morning. Officials say the driver, 40-year-old Shannon Wayne Marshall from Tennessee, struck a Lenexa patrol car and then fled in what was suspected to be a stolen car.
The ensuing police chase ended in Mission, Kansas, when the driver stopped at the QuikTrip and then went into the gas station with another person, officials say.
Law enforcement from Lenexa, Fairway, Mission and the Kansas Highway Patrol were on the scene to arrest the suspects when shots were fired.
Officer Oswald was mortally wounded and one of the suspects, Shannon Wayne Marshall, died in the shootout.
The other suspect, 32-year-old Andrea Rene Cothran from Tennessee, was arrested and charged Tuesday with aggravated battery, fleeing law enforcement, felony theft and reckless driving. Her bond was set at $1 million.
