Two Topeka Police Officers Killed

Two of Topeka’s finest were shot and killed Sunday after responding to a call concerning a suspicious vehicle at a grocery store, according to local authorities. The killing of the two officers, Cpl. David Gogian and Officer Jeff Atherly, is “unspeakable,” said Topeka Police Chief Ronald Miller. Both officers were shot in the head, according to Miller. Police are on the lookout for a 22-year-old suspect thought to have fired on the two officers from the suspicious vehicle. “It’s clearly beyond words,” Miller said. “It’s unspeakable almost about why this happens and why this is happening in America at this stage in our history.”
