Police are searching for suspects in a carjacking outside a downtown Kansas City nightclub early today, authorities said.
Information is sketchy but police said that about 3 a.m., dispatchers received a call about a carjacking outside Club Oasis in the 2800 block of Southwest Boulevard.
Jackson County deputies working off-duty at the club or nearby got into a rolling gunbattle with the suspects, a dispatcher said. She deputies were not hurt but no further information about the deputies' involvement was immediately available.
Kansas City police are searching for four suspects, according to a media report. The suspects apparently abandoned the car a short time later at 23rd and Jarboe streets.
