Three persons face felony charges for resisting arrest during a long pursuit involving Lone Jack and other police agencies, with shots fired during the chase, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

According to court records, a Lone Jack police officer late on Friday, April 6, 2017 attempted to stop a suspect vehicle on Buckner Tarnsey Road in Lone Jack when the vehicle accelerated. A 90-minute pursuit began, extending across Jackson, Johnson and Cass counties in Missouri. Several police agencies joined in the pursuit. It was determined that Shoop was driving and at one point she went the wrong way up a highway exit ramp. On Colbern Road several shots were fired at the pursuing police officer. Firearms were recovered from that area later and spent shell casings were found inside the suspect vehicle.
Prosecutors requested bonds of $60,000 cash for Shoop, $100,000 for Fanara and $80,000 for Srite.
