“We’re not going to pursue criminal charges,” Chambers said. “Based on the scene and a witness and the history of the gentleman, we don’t feel this was anything more than self-defense.”

The Kansas Highway Patrol had been looking for the 41-year-old man, who Chambers said had several warrants out for his arrest in Iowa, shortly before noon. The man had driven through a Kansas Turnpike tollbooth without paying. His car, which Chambers said was stolen from Indiana, was found abandoned a short time later. He was seen running into a wooded area near the tollbooth.

Kansas Highway Patrol authorities searched for the man with a patrol plane and by car without any result.

The shooting happened shortly after 5 p.m. at a farmhouse east of the turnpike, near South Haven.

You heard wrong.

I have it on good authority all you need to do is let loose a couple of blasts into the air from the balcony.
