Lawrence police arrested a 28-year-old Lawrence man early Friday who was suspected of firing shots in the parking lot of a bar.
Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman, said officers were called at 2:35 a.m. Friday to Taste Lounge, Bar and Grill, 804 W. 24th St., after a report of multiple shots being fired from a vehicle in the parking lot.
Two men were believed to be inside the vehicle.
According to police scanner traffic early Friday, there was a pursuit of the vehicle west on 23rd Street, and the suspect was driving at speeds reaching 80 mph. Sarna said officers then located the vehicle near Bob Billings Parkway and Iowa Street.
Police arrested the 28-year-old man on suspicion of aggravated assault, criminal possession and discharge of a firearm and criminal damage to property.
Douglas County prosecutors on Friday did not make a decision about filing formal charges.
The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects unless they are formally charged. He was expected to appear before a judge today to set bond on the case.
According to Kansas Department of Corrections records, the man is on parole for a 2007 Douglas County drug possession case.
Police did not locate the second alleged suspect, but they recovered a weapon from the vehicle, Sarna said. No injuries were reported.
Earlier this year, two Leavenworth men were charged after shots were fired Oct. 9 outside Taste.
