Topeka PD: 4 dead, 1 injured after shooting at special needs home; shooter among the deceased
Four males are dead and another male was injured after a shooting on Sunday afternoon at a southwest Topeka residence where in-home care was provided for individuals with special needs, and the believed shooter is among the deceased, Topeka police Lt. Colleen Stuart said.
The shooting was reported to Shawnee County dispatchers at 3:52 p.m. from a call from the home. It was reported as a multiple-victim shooting at 4100 S.W. 28th. Crime scene tape surrounded the residence into the evening Sunday.
Police aren’t looking for any persons of interest at this time, Stuart said at a media briefing at 6:40 p.m. Sunday, adding later that the believed shooter died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
“This is a very sad situation,” Stuart said. “We want to make sure we do this right the first time, and we can provide that closure for the families.”
