TOPEKA, KAN. – A Kansas City man has been sentenced on federal charges of possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking and discharging a firearm on school property, Acting U.S. Attorney Duston Slinkard said today.
DALLAS SRIVISAY, 21, of Kansas City, Missouri, was sentenced on April 20, 2021 to 96 months in federal prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release. Srivisay entered a guilty plea on October 6, 2020. According to court records, this investigation involved an incident where Srivisay and a codefendant participated in a drug exchange with others in a Manhattan, Kansas high school parking lot.

Immediately following the shootout at the high school, Srivisay and the codefendant were engaged in a high-speed police chase on I-70 where the vehicle reached speeds exceeding 120 miles per hour until the vehicle was forcibly stopped by law enforcement.
This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, Riley County Kansas Police Department, Kansas City Kansas Police Department, Kansas Highway Patrol, and the Overland Park Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Skipper Jacobs prosecuted the case.
