After fleeing police, the vehicle eventually was stopped in Kansas City after running over some stopsticks. Five males fled the vehicle. Two were captured, including the defendant. Witnesses told police Theus was one of two shooters in Raytown. The defendant told police he fired into a crowd because of an on-going feud between the two groups.
