FULTON - A man is wanted in Fulton after fleeing police and leading them on a brief chase.

The Fulton Police Department stopped Lionel Gurley on Seventh Street and Nichols late Thursday night. While attempting to arrest Gurley, police said Gurley broke away and drove northbound on Nichols Street.

Police said the suspect fled in a vehicle and attempted to run over a police officer who was on foot a block way. Fulton police said an officer then shot several rounds into Gurley's vehicle. They said Gurley eluded officers after a short vehicle pursuit and he has not been located. 

Fulton Police Chief Steve Myers said there is no vehicle description. Chief Myers said the suspect ran to an unknown location.

"We do have reasons to believe he might be injured," Myers said. "We are certainly looking for him for couple reasons, and number one is that if he is injured, he needs to be attended by a doctor or hospital. So we are trying to locate him presently."

Gurley is wanted for felony charges, but had not been charged for this most recent alleged crime as of Friday afternoon.

If you have any information about Gurley, contact the Fulton Police Department at 573-592-3100 or the Callaway County Crime stoppers at 573-592-2474.
