2 Topeka officers fatally shot outside market
TOPEKA -- Authorities say two Topeka police officers were shot outside a grocery store and died later at a hospital.
Topeka police say a 22-year-old male suspect was still at large after Sunday evening's shooting. He is believed to be armed and extremely dangerous.
The officers were shot when they were responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle at a central Topeka grocery store. They were identified as 50-year-old Cpl. David Gogian and 29-year-old Officer Jeff Atherly.
A small crowd gathered for a candlelight vigil outside the Topeka Police headquarters as police announced the officers' deaths to reporters nearby.
Gogian had been with the Topeka department since September 2004 and Atherly since April 2011.
