LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) - An eastern Kansas police chief says it's unclear who fired the shot that killed a young Kansas girl at the end of a high-speed chase that started after she was reported to be abducted.

Leavenworth Police Chief Pat Kitchens said Saturday initial reports that a 30-year-old man who took the girl from her home fired the shot that killed Cadence Harris might be inaccurate.

Platte County, Missouri, police notified Leavenworth police at 7:30 p.m. Friday they were in pursuit of a man suspected of abducting a child.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/1kGcg0L ) reports the chase crossed the Missouri River into Leavenworth, where it ended at a construction site.

Kitchens says the man was wounded in a shootout with police and was taken to a Kansas City hospital with non-life-threatening wounds.
