Police fatally shoot man who refuses to drop gun

KSAL StaffDecember 14, 2014

A 19-year-old man is dead after being shot by police who repeatedly ordered him to drop a pistol he was pointing at others.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the shooting happened about 11:35 a.m. Saturday in Topeka after several crime reports earlier in the day.

City spokeswoman Suzie Gilbert says police responded at 9 a.m. to a domestic disturbance where a man reportedly strangled a woman. A witness saw the man flee the home with a knife and gun.

Officers responded to an attempted carjacking at 11:15 a.m. and found a woman who had been cut on her face with a knife.

Gilbert says police found the armed man at 11:30 a.m. as he was pointing the weapon at bystanders and police.

His name hasn’t been released.
