TOPEKA -- Authorities have identified the gunman who killed two Topeka police officers as a 22-year-old man who records show had a criminal record.
During a news conference today, authorities said the shooter was David Tiscareno. Officers later shot him.
Following a tip, authorities surrounded a nearby house where a 22-year-old suspect was holed up early today and, after negotiations failed, Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents fired tear gas inside. The Shawnee County sheriff's office, which is leading the investigation, said the man emerged from the home with a gun and officers opened fire.
