WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police have arrested four men who they say robbed a home and shot at the homeowner who pursued them in a car chase.

Lt. Todd Ojile says two robbers held the 30-year-old man at gunpoint while they ransacked his bedroom. They took items including a coin collection and fled in an SUV with two others.

Ojile says the homeowner got into his car and chased the SUV for several miles. He says the robbers used a handgun and shotgun to shoot at the victim's vehicle.

Police joined the chase and eventually apprehended the men and recovered the goods.

They were jailed on charges of aggravated robbery, aggravated assault and kidnapping. Their names haven't been released.
