BELOIT, Kan. (AP) _ The Beloit City Council has fired the town's police chief.

The Salina Journal reports the council fired Police Chief Brenon Odle on Tuesday. Odle led the department for two years.

The council members, who met in executive session, did not offer reasons for firing Odle.

Odle says he was ``shell-shocked'' about the decision and said there were never any complaints about his job performance. But he said council members would ``get frustrated about spending, the vehicles and stuff.''

Lt. Dave Elam was named interim police chief.

Beloit is a town of about 3,800 residents in north-central Kansas.
