TOPEKA (KSNT) – The Topeka Police Department is investigating another murder Friday morning in south Topeka.
A 27 News reporter on the scene reported Shawnee County Sheriff’s deputies, Topeka Police Department officers, Kansas Highway Patrol and airport police are on the scene.
Shawnee County dispatch confirms with 27 News the call came in around 10 a.m. on 37th street. This is just minutes away from a shooting Thursday that led to a police chase and officer-involved shooting, leaving 1 person dead, 2 in the hospital and a Topeka police officer shot.
