TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNW) – Authorities say a 27-year-old man has been arrested in a road rage killing in Topeka.

Topeka police said in a news release early Wednesday that the suspect, identified as 27-year-old Daniel Alan Askew, was arrested Tuesday and booked into jail on suspicion of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.

Police say a “road rage argument” over “traffic maneuvers” led to the shooting of 28-year-old Michael Stadler as he rode in vehicle Saturday. Stadler died later at a hospital.

The release said the people involved didn’t know each other before the shooting. Police said additional arrests are possible.
