TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Topeka Police say a man was arrested after barricading himself inside a house for hours, causing a standoff early Sunday morning.

TPD responded to a call of a possible domestic disturbance on the 800 block of SW Lincoln Street around 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning. A female left the residence but a male stayed inside and refused to come out of the house or speak with officers. Once he was identified, it was learned that he was wanted by TPD in connection to a shooting that happened a little more than a week ago.

TPD and crisis negotiators were able to arrest the suspect just after 9 a.m. Sunday morning.

Trent Robbins, 27, surrendered to law enforcement and he was booked in the Shawnee County Jail on multiple charges, including aggravated domestic battery, felon in possession of a firearm, and criminal damage to property.

Topeka Police say prior to this incident Robbins was wanted in connection to a shooting that happened in the early morning hours of July 30th at Tony’s Quick Shop, located at 6th and Clay.
