It happened in The Crossing Apartments, 12300 block of West 85th Terrace around 7 p.m. Saturday.

Officers were dispatched on reports of a man who had been stabbed multiple times. The suspect, only described as an Asian woman, reportedly stabbed the man before running to a nearby apartment.

Recorded radio traffic indicates officers arrived to find the man with stab wounds outside of the building. As officers were searching for the alleged suspect, firefighters were dispatched to the same building for a possible building fire.

Master Police Officer Danny Chavez of the Lenexa Police Department confirms the incident was a domestic disturbance.

"Adult male sustained non-life threatening injuries," Chavez said in an emailed response to questions. "Female currently in custody."

Johnson County Med-Act transported a man in his early 40s to an area trauma center with serious, but non-life threatening stab wounds to his hands and one to his leg.

Firefighters from Lenexa, Overland Park, and Shawnee responded for the reported fire. Those firefighters were allowed to disregard the call shortly after they arrived on the scene.

No other details have been released.

Master Police Officer Danny Chavez of the Lenexa Police Department says an officer tried to stop the vehicle in the 8700 block of southbound Interstate 35 for a lighting violation.

"The vehicle got off on the 95th Street ramp, where our officers disregarded the traffic stop," Chavez said.

Officers tailed the vehicle, a 2002 Chevrolet Impala, as it drove west on 95th Street to Pflumm Road, where the driver turned north. The suspect turned east on Santa Fe Trail Drive, and then south on Quivira Road.

"At times, officers were able to see the direction the vehicle was headed and we successfully deployed stop sticks in the 9400 block of Quivira," Chavez said.

After hitting the stop sticks, the driver continued to westbound 95th Street and back to northbound Pflumm Road. He drove through several parking lots near 87th Street and Pflumm then returned to southbound Pflumm Road.

"We were also receiving calls from citizens about the location of the vehicle," Chavez said. "The vehicle was eventually located abandoned in the 9400 block of Pflumm."

A witness who was driving behind the suspect vehicle gave officers a description of the suspect and told them he ran east along 94th Street.

At least two witnesses stopped when the suspect abandoned his car
and were able to give officers a good description of the man and the direction he ran
Officers quickly set a perimeter to contain the suspect and deployed a K-9 to search for him.

"We received a call from a citizen in the 13400 block of West 94th Street who said that an unknown male was sitting on his front porch," Chavez said. "Our officers contacted this male and he was eventually arrested for numerous warrants."

Fire Marshal Corey Sands says firefighters were alerted of the fire by calls to 911 about 9:30 p.m. Those calls were followed closely by a call from an alarm company reporting the building’s fire alarm had activated.

“Our crews arrived to find fire on the outside of the building, where the construction is occurring at the high school,” Sands said. “They got it taken care of pretty quick.”

Sands said the fire had extended to the roofline of the building, which firefighters also caught and extinguished quickly.

Unified School District 232 sent an email to families in the district informing them of the fire. The message says that the fire occurred on the outside of the building in an area where demolition work is underway for the addition of a competitive gymnasium.

“We are grateful that our emergency systems worked as planned, which is why the fire department arrived so quickly,’ the statement said. “There were no school activities taking place at the time of the fire and no fire damage to the interior.”

After hearing that several neighbors were talking about how they could smell smoke earlier in the evening, Fire Marshal Sands said, “we would encourage people if you do smell smoke, call 911.”

Sands said if the smell of smoke had been reported sooner, firefighters would have responded to investigate and worked to locate the source.

Fire investigators say the fire was caused by demolition crews using torches and saws to remove metal structural components.

"The metal and roofing material that was demolished was then placed in a pile up against the exterior wall of the high school," Fire Marshal Sands said. "The roofing material and foam roofing pieces used to insulate the roof actually insulated the fire for several hours when it was placed in a pile after the demolition."

Damage to the building is estimated at $2,500

Shawnee firefighters were assisted on the call by the Lenexa Fire Department and Overland Park Fire Department. Johnson County Med-Act was on scene with two ambulances and their firefighter rehabilitation unit due to the heat and humidity.

No injuries were reported.
