I think the most important thing to ask is this: was the shooter from Topeka?

Well, all I can say is one thing. I'm not surprised. The police need to watch that house--I've seen some of the traffic there.

Surround it with roundabouts, ban guns within 1000 feet of it, put stoplights at all the intersections near it, ban smoking around it. That will fix it.

The incident was alcohol related, It involved two family members. Apparently the two began arguing, the shooter went out to his truck and got a gun. He went back into the house and shot the victim three times in the head. There were children as well as other adults in the home. The shooter took flight and illuded a massive police search. Latest news is that the shooter was captured in Oklahoma, not offically verified yet.

Let's not start rumors! Whether intentional or not, this dirtbag was carrying a handgun and jacking with it in a residence. My guess, it was intentional due to the response of law enforcement. Now is the time to put pressure on this "home"; something just isn't right--Trust me!
