TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Topeka police say a man who was shot by a state trooper while his vehicle was dragging two officers has died.

Police Lt. Andrew Beightel says officers, one from Topeka and one from the Kansas Highway Patrol, were not seriously injured in the Tuesday incident.

The driver of the car, 35-year-old Jarmane Dywane Logan, of Topeka, died Tuesday at an area hospital.

Beightel said the officers were talking to occupants of a car that the trooper had tried to stop earlier after it stalled at a Topeka intersection.

A second vehicle arrived and occupants in the first car tried to get into the second vehicle, an SUV.

Beightel says as the officers tried to intervene, they were dragged by the SUV and the trooper shot Logan.
