Man arrested after shooting, standoff in Topeka

Topeka Standoff

TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – A man is in custody after a shooting at a gas station and a four-hour standoff at a house in central Topeka.

Police say 51-year-old Daniel Lynn Cregut was booked into jail Monday night on several charges, including four counts of attempted murder.

Officers went to a gas station after a woman called to say she was being chased by a man with a gun.

Police say that man fired into the store and a bystander, 35-year-old Bryon Snyder, was shot. He is in critical but stable condition at a Topeka hospital.

Lt. John Sturgeon says after the shooting, police tracked Cregut to the home. The standoff ended when Cregut came out of the house without incident.
