Man Killed While Shooting Fireworks

Associated Press - July 5, 2016 10:23 am

A Topeka police detective and a suspect were wounded as officers tried to take the suspect into custody.

A 26-year-old Kansas man who climbed onto a roof to launch fireworks is dead after falling from atop his Topeka home.

Christen Locke fell from the roof after he was injured by a firework just after midnight Tuesday morning.

Topeka police Lt. Jennifer Cross says the call was originally reported as a fall but an investigation revealed the fireworks accident.

Locke was transported to a hospital with life-threatening injuries and later died.
