TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Topeka Police say reports to people in two vehicles shooting at each other took them to several areas Wednesday night.

Lt. John Trimble said the initial report came out around 7:40 p.m. Wednesday from I-70 and SE California. A short time later, a man was found injured downtown near SE 11th and Quincy. Police say he was hurt when a car crashed on the ramp from I-70 to 10th St., and walked to where he was found. Trimble said he and others who were in the wrecked car were taken into custody without further incident. None appeared to have suffered any gunshot wounds.

Authorities had the ramp from I-70 to 10th at SE Madison closed, along with several other ramps along I-70, while they investigated.

The other vehicle involved in the shooting had not been located.

TPD says officers continue working to gather information and evidence. Anyone with information may email, or call Shawnee Co. Crime Stoppers, 785-234-0007.
