A man reportedly walked into the Jewell County Sheriff’s Office in Mankato around on Tuesday morning and opened fire on deputies there—two deputies were struck, according to the Salina Journal.

The condition of the two deputies has not yet been released.

Following the shooting, the gunman reportedly led police on a pursuit that ended in Ottawa County, north of Salina, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.

A trooper stopped the pursuit with a PIT maneuver, and when they approached the vehicle they discovered the driver had a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The driver was transported to a nearby hospital—his condition has also not yet been released.
