Three officers chastised in double shooting

January 17, 2010


— Topeka Police Chief Ron Miller has chastised four officers linked to a double shooting that happened after a night of St. Patrick’s Day revelry.

Miller met Friday with the officers and said he was “disappointed” in them. But he stressed that no laws were broken.

Investigators said that before the March, 18, 2008, shooting, the four off-duty officers had stopped at a party and a bar. They ended the night at the home of one of the officers, where they got into a fight with two brothers at a nearby home over a loud party.

Investigators have said the brothers were shot and wounded. Both recovered. The officers said the brothers were armed.

Miller says the police department hasn’t decided whether to discipline the four officers. The four remain on administrative duty but aren’t patrolling the streets.
