Lawrence Police are investigating after a 27-year-old man was shot at least once at an address near Wellington Road and Steven Drive.

Officers were called shortly before 12:40 Friday morning. On arrival officers located a person with a gunshot wound to the back and a second possible wound to the jaw.

Fire Medical crews reported the victim to be in critical condition and requested a Life Star helicopter to respond. The helicopter landed on the north side of West Middle School, 2700 Harvard Road, and transported the victim to the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City, Kansas.

The Journal-World's Caitlin Doornbos was with police at the intersection of Wellington Road and Steven Drive, where officers used a public address speaker in attempt to contact anyone inside 3009 Steven Drive. An armored police vehicle arrived at the scene shortly before 2 a.m.

Police received a search warrant for the address around 3 a.m. and entered the home around 3:10.

Caitlin Doornbos reported that police searched the home, but did not find anyone inside.

Lawrence Police Department spokesperson Sergeant Trent McKinley says, "a 22-year-old, Kansas City, Kansas man was arrested shortly before 8 a.m. this morning following a vehicle pursuit on K-10 highway that ended near Eudora."

McKinley says around 7:40 a.m. officers received information on a vehicle, left running in a driveway near 24th and Alabama Streets, being stolen. An officer spotted the vehicle on East 23rd Street and attempted to stop it.

"A pursuit ensued, reaching speeds of approximately 100 miles-per-hour before the suspect lost control of the vehicle and crashed near K-10 and Church Street in Eudora," McKinley said.

The suspect was taken into custody and transported to an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries sustained in the crash.

McKinley says, "the suspect will be transported to the Douglas County Jail on a number of charges, following his medical treatment."

Police have not identified the shooting victim.

Lawrence Police detectives continue to investigate a stabbing that occurred early Sunday morning and are asking for the public's assistance.

Officers located the victim near West Sixth Street and Monterey Way. Police say the victim sustained numerous injuries, including stab wounds.

Medics transported the victim to Lawrence Memorial Hospital with serious injuries.

In a news release on Monday, Sergeant Trent McKinley says, "investigators believe the incident began after the victim left a nightclub in the 1000 block of Massachusetts Street just before 2:00 a.m. The victim conversed with individuals before entering a vehicle near the nightclub."

Police believe the suspects intended to rob the victim and began beating on him as the vehicle traveled through downtown Lawrence.

According to the news release, "the occupants of the vehicle were described as a black male driver, a black or Hispanic mixed race male, a "short" Hispanic female, and the white male victim."

"Near Eighth and Rhode Island, east of downtown, the vehicle stopped briefly and the victim attempted to flee. The suspects fought with the victim and pulled him back into the vehicle which then left the area," according to McKinley.

A witness described the vehicle as a dark colored, older sedan, in good condition.

In the area of Eighth and Monterey Way, the victim was able to get out of the vehicle and run from the suspects.

"Blood was located outside one home in the area, therefore officers are searching the area for additional evidence."

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Lawrence Police at 785-832-7509 or Douglas County CrimeStoppers at 785-843-8477. Calls to CrimeStoppers can be made anonymously and callers may be eligible for a reward of up to $1000 for information leading to an arrest.

Shawnee Police are investigating after an SUV sideswiped a parked car and the crashed head-on into a utility pole, leaving the driver seriously injured early Saturday.

A neighbor called 911 around 1:40 Saturday morning, after a Cadillac Escalade crashed head-on into a utility pole at the T-intersection of West 55th and Flint Streets.

Johnson County Med-Act reported the SUV had sustained significant damage and the front airbags had deployed.

The driver was the only person in the vehicle. He was transported to an area hospital with serious injuries.

Police believe speed played a role in the crash and alcohol played a role in the crash.

At the scene, it was clear that the SUV rear-ended a car parked on Flint Street. The impact forced the parked car to collided with another vehicle parked on the street. The impact sheared off part of a front wheel, brake assembly, and axle of the speeding SUV. The SUV continued north and crashed head-on into the utility pole. The pole was split, up the middle and will need to be replaced. The crash did not disrupt power to any nearby homes or street lights.

Late Saturday morning, the damaged utility pole remains, now marked with a large red 'X'.

Shawnee Police activity logs show that the driver was found to be DUI. The driver remains hospitalized late Saturday morning.

The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating a two car crash that ended with a guard rail piercing through one car.

Shawnee Police dispatched officers to the area of Interstate 435 and Midland just before 7:30 Tuesday morning, after dispatchers received multiple 911 calls reporting an accident. At least one of the callers reported that a vehicle had crossed through the median and struck a guard rail.

Officers located the crash on Interstate 435 between Shawnee Mission Parkway and Midland Drive.

At the scene, one car came to rest on the inside shoulder of northbound I-435 with a guard rail entering the passenger compartment through the engine bay. The end of the guard rail could be seen sticking out of the rear windshield of the car. The second vehicle came to rest in the southbound lanes on I-435.

Johnson County Med-Act reported three minor injuries at the scene. Only one of those injured people was transported by Med-Act to an area hospital.

Troopers say a 2007 Toyota Corolla was southbound in the outside lane, trying to make a lane change, when it was cutoff by an unknown vehicle. The driver of the Toyota swerved to avoid a collision, lost control, and struck a 2007 Cadillac STS, which was also southbound.

The collision forced the Cadillac into the median and the guard rail on the northbound side of the Interstate.

Troopers have identified the driver of the Toyota as a 30-year-old Lenexa woman. There was also a 7-year-old in the Toyota. Both sustained minor injuries, but were not transported by ambulance.

The driver of the Cadillac has been identified as a 64-year-old Topeka man. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment of his minor injuries.
