A citizen observed a white SUV leaving the area after the shots were fired. The vehicle was located in the area and officers attempted to stop the suspect vehicle. The vehicle fled, and a KDPS officer was able to deploy spikes to safely deflate the tires. Two occupants fled the vehicle on foot near the intersection of Sprinkle and Kilgore.
