The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says a Nebraska man involved in a fight with a sheriff's deputy who fired shots at him has been arrested. 

Authorities say the shooting happened early Saturday following a traffic stop near the west-central Kansas town of Larned. 

A KBI news release says a Pawnee County sheriff's deputy shot at a passenger in the vehicle following an altercation. The passenger then fled on foot. 

The KBI says the passenger, identified as Alejandro Alvarado, 21, of Lincoln, Nebraska, was later found at Pawnee Rock, Kansas, and arrested. He had not been shot.
