A Kansas City man has been charged with shooting at two Kansas City police officers who were in a marked KCPD vehicle on Saturday night in Kansas City, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Isaiah D. Jackson, dob: 5/24/1991, faces the following charges: two Assault 1st Degree, three Armed Criminal Actions and one count Unlawful Use of a Weapon.*

According to court records, the Kansas City Police Department officers were in a marked patrol vehicle near Blue Parkway and Kensington when the officers reported hearing loud gunshots. The rear passenger window of the patrol vehicle broke out. One officer believed he had been shot because he felt something hit the back of his head. They began to pursue a suspect vehicle at a high rate of speed. Jackson was taken into custody. Jackson told police he was driving in the area and said he had fired a weapon in the air minutes before passing a marked police car. But video from cameras in the area showed the suspect vehicle slowing to the same rate of speed as the police vehicle, hitting his brakes about the time the police vehicle's brakes are hit. The the suspect drives quickly away. 

Prosecutors requested a bond of $100,000 cash.
