He fled shortly after a policeman had served him with a warrant issued at Fort Worth, Tex., charging forgery. Augusta police Capt. Tom Carpenter and police Sgt. Miller Gladfelter spotted the man's car going east on U. S. 54 before dawn.

Police returned the fire. The fleeing man drove the car over an embankment and into a fence one mile east of Augusta then fled toward a shelter area on a branch of the Little Walnut River. Gladfelter said the man shot four times while running across a field. Otney refused to surrender, Gladfelter said, and he fired twice at the fleeing man before returning to his car to radio for help. Carpenter continued pursuit and said Otney fired at him several times as he ran into a wooded area along a creek. No one was hit in the exchange of gunfire. Other police quickly joined the hunt. The patrol sent two troopers into the area, joining sheriff's officers from Sedgwick and Butler counties and police from Wichita, El Dorado, Augusta and other cities in the area. A state plane manned by two troopers took to the air to help. Wichita Detective Clarence Sichley said he went to Otney's basement apartment to serve the warrant on him. As they started to leave, Sich- ley said, it began raining and Otney asked to close his car windows. The man got in and closed the windows and locked the doors, then started the engine and drove away. Otney had been in Wichita since February working for a refrigeration firm.
