2 shot during large fight in Topeka

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Topeka police say two suspects are in custody after shots were fired during fights that involved up to 15 people.

The fight Sunday night left two people with gunshot wounds, although the injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Police Lt. Ron Gish said in a news release that officers received reports of a large group of people fighting in southeast Topeka, with some of the people involved armed with handguns.

Gish says a 30-year-old female and 15-year-old boy were taken to hospitals with gunshot wounds.

After the shooters' car was found, police took four people into custody.

Police later said a 48 year-old male and 17-year-old male, both from Topeka, were the primary shooting suspects.
