SEWARD- Authorities say a suspect holding a gun was fatally shot by deputies after a lengthy chase.

The shooting happened Monday afternoon in Seward County. Names of the person killed and the deputies involved have not been released. The Seward County Sheriff’s Office says deputies tried to stop a vehicle traveling west on Interstate 80, but the vehicle spun around, going east in the westbound lanes for a time before crossing into the eastbound lanes. The vehicle stopped after a seven-mile chase. The sheriff’s office said the passenger exited but the driver refused and deputies “saw a weapon in the driver’s hand.” The suspect was shot and died at the scene.

An investigation is ongoing.
