Area of Topeka shootings has seen other homicides

KSAL StaffDecember 8, 2013

The area surrounding a central Topeka home in which three people were found shot to death has seen four other homicides in a little over six years.

But The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/19471Wm ) that some residents say the Central Park neighborhood is a good one that has improved in recent years.

Topeka police still have not publicly listed any suspects in what they’ve described as the first quadruple homicide in the city’s history. One female victim was found at a Topeka restaurant about a half-mile from her home, where the bodies of two men and a woman were found.

The same home was the site of a teenage boy’s shooting in September 2007. Also, shooting deaths occurred within several blocks in October 2009, August 2011 and June of this year.
