“Topeka police Capt. Brian Desch on Wednesday said a man suffering from a gunshot wound arrived by private vehicle early Tuesday at a local hospital while officers were en route to the 1300 block of S. Kansas Avenue on a report of an armed break-in by three white men.” So says cjonline.com. That report by an un-named homeowner indicated that the three were armed with knives and intended to rob him. Until, that is, Mr. Homeowner sent a volley of lead in their general direction . . .
Though he only hit one of them, that was apparently enough.
(The wounded) man, along with a woman who went to the hospital with him, subsequently were taken to the Law Enforcement Center to be questioned about the break-in, Desch said.
“Investigation led to the names of the others involved,” he said.
The four who were arrested are Trenton Lynn Bishop, 24; Mark Allen Vickery, 22; Daniel Keith White, 25; and Ashley Marie Rayls, 18. All are from Topeka.
Not much detail about Mr. Homeowner is given other than the fact that he seems to have acquitted himself pretty well in the face of three armed home invaders, all of whom are now residents of the Shawnee County Jail. MikeB302000 could not be reached for comment.
