Korean American Akari Park, 24, was arrested in Kansas on Wednesday, accused of shooting at three police officers in an apartment complex in Kansas City.
Police say Park, who was originally from North Carolina, drove a car through the complex, killing two police officers.
Police are also searching for a third suspect.
The incident happened Wednesday afternoon.
A source close to Park told CNN that he came to the United States from South Korea about two years ago, and has been living in Kansas since.
He said he plans to return to South Korea, where he is a U.S. citizen.
