A 49-year-old Topeka man who forced his way into his neighbor’s apartment was shot and killed by the tenant.
Police say Edward Bowens was found dead just after 3 a.m. Saturday at an apartment complex five blocks southwest of the Kansas Statehouse.
The tenant, who hasn’t been named, was being questioned Saturday morning but had not been arrested or charged with anything.
A resident of the complex said the man who was shot lived across the hall from the apartment he broke into.
The resident said the shooting victim may have been looking for someone he believed was in the apartment where he was shot.
