A police pursuit in Fairway, Kansas, resulted in the tragic shooting of a police officer, and a woman from Tennessee has been charged in connection with the incident. Andrea Rene Cothran, a 32-year-old resident of Goodlettsville, Tennessee, is facing multiple charges including aggravated battery, fleeing law enforcement, reckless driving, and felony theft. The pursuit began when Lenexa police received a report of a stolen vehicle near I-35 and 95th Street. The suspect led the police north on I-35 until they eventually stopped near I-35 and Lamar Avenue in Mission, Kansas. At that point, two suspects crashed the car and sought refuge in a nearby QuikTrip store. Law enforcement officers from various agencies entered the store to apprehend the suspects. Tragically, one suspect, identified as Shannon Wayne Marshall from Ashland City, Tennessee, was fatally shot during the incident. Cothran was taken into custody and is currently being held at the Johnson County Adult Detention Center on a bond of $1 million. She is scheduled to appear in Johnson County District Court on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. for her initial court appearance..
