A man suspected of robbing an AT&T store in Kansas may also be a suspect in a Tulsa robbery.

Police in Derby, Kansas, arrested 25-year-old James Michael Phillips Tuesday morning after a robbery that left a woman with multiple gunshot wounds.

According to KWCH in Kansas, Phillips was arrested after he was spotted about 15 minutes after the shooting when police chased him until he crashed into an empty Wichita Police car.

Reports also say Phillips fired one shot during the chase, but no one was hit.

Wichita police are looking into whether Phillips may have staged several robberies there.

Tulsa police also want to talk to him about the robbery of an AT&T store July 20 at 96th and Riverside.
