Authorities say a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper has shot and critically wounded an armed man during a confrontation after his vehicle became disabled during a pursuit. 

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation said in a news release that the chase began Thursday afternoon after troopers encountered Dustin Schultz-Bergin, 40, at the Matfield Green Service Area, a toll road rest stop along Interstate 35 in Chase County. 

The KBI says the pursuit ended when tire-puncturing stop sticks were placed in his path. 
Schultz-Bergin, who is from the Kansas City suburb of Olathe, was taken to a Wichita hospital.
