Police investigate children left alone

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A 40-year-old Topeka man is shot in the neck and a second was taken into custody after what police suspect could be a case of road rage.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the accident happened at 6:23 p.m. Sunday on U.S. 24 about a quarter-mile before the exit ramp to K-4.

Shawnee County Sheriff Herman Jones says that after the collision, two men driving the vehicles got out and one shot the other. Jones says the victim had a nonlife-threatening wound and was talking and alert.

The names of the people involved weren’t immediately released.

Jones says there were multiple passengers in both vehicles, and that several were taken into custody for questioning. He says a gun was retrieved from a bush on the side of the highway.
