Two Kansas City residents will be charged following an alleged carjacking that began in Independence shortly after midnight Wednesday.

Tom Gentry, spokesperson for Independence police, said a man was in his car in the 12000 block of East 50th Street South after midnight when another vehicle pulled up.

Two suspects, described as African-American, got out, brandished a handgun and told him to give them his car. One man was 17 years old and another was a juvenile.

When the driver refused, one of the men reportedly shot at the man but missed. The would-be carjackers fled. Police were notified and spotted their car, pursuing them at speeds of about 80 mph. Kansas City police also were alerted.

Police followed the car until it crashed near Interstate 435 and Blue Parkway.

The suspects then ran off, and an Independence police dog tracked them to a house in the 5600 block of Ewing Avenue on Kansas City’s east side. Helicopters were also deployed.

Police surrounded the house, and two hours later the men surrendered and were taken into custody.

Gentry said the suspects are believed to have attempted to carjack a vehicle in Raytown on Tuesday night but were unsuccesful.

“From what we’re hearing, these were some pretty serious (suspects),” Gentry said.

Officers from several police agencies were meeting Wednesday to review the incident and charges are likely to be filed Thursday or Friday.
