A suspect in a Shawnee shooting was arrested following a police pursuit through Johnson County as the gunshot victim remained hospitalized on Thursday.

Shawnee police Capt. William Sanderson said in a statement Thursday that a person was taken into police custody in connection with the shooting investigation. An arrest was made following a pursuit involving several area agencies that ended in Olathe, Sanderson said.
