TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – The Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office said three people are in custody following a standoff in the Oakland neighborhood.

Deputies went to a house at 703 NE Sumner St. early Friday morning after investigating a disturbance in the 3100 block of Northwest Rochester Road. The sheriff’s office said someone shot several rounds toward a house while driving away. The suspect vehicle was later found in the Oakland neighborhood, but the suspect ran on foot.

The sheriff’s office said around 7:45 a.m., deputies tried to arrest the suspect, Trey G. Martinez, 24, of Topeka at a home in the 700 block of Northeast Sumner Street.

Four people came out of the Sumner house and told authorities a gunman was inside and wouldn’t leave, according to the sheriff’s office. The four also said the gunman had fired a shot at another home on Rochester Road.

Just after noon, Martinez was taken into custody and taken to the Law Enforcement Center. His charges are pending.
