Topeka police were investigating a report of shots fired on Friday afternoon in southwest Topeka.

 

At least four Topeka police cars responded to the scene at an apartment building at 5216 S.W. 23rd, where a Shawnee County Emergency Communications Center dispatcher said shots had been reported fired just before 4 p.m.

The scene is less than a block west of S.W. 23rd and Fairlawn Road.

Topeka police Sgt. Jason Junghans said no one was hurt and no arrests had been made.

Junghans said police were told that two men had been reported fighting. Police didn’t find either man at the scene.

Police did find two shell casings and damage from a small-caliber bullet in a hallway near the rear door to the apartment building, Junghans said.
