Child shot in Topeka hotel room

January 3, 2012


— Police in Topeka are investigating the New Year's Eve shooting of a 7-year-old child at a hotel in the northern part of the city.

The child's injuries were described as life-threatening, but police had released few details by Monday night.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports officers responded shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday to a report of shooting in a room at the Holiday Inn Express on U.S. 24 in northern Topeka.

Along with the wounded child, they found several adults and juveniles in the room and took them to the Law Enforcement Center for questioning.
