A dispute over Trump yard signs led to a shooting in which three people were shot in North Topeka, Kansas, on Saturday, according to a Topeka police supervisor.
Police were summoned to a home in North Topeka after a confrontation reportedly took place between a man and those whom he believed had engaged in theft of signs that supported President Donald Trump, according to The Topeka Capital-Journal.
The Topeka Capital-Journal further reported:
Officers responded about 11 p.m. to the scene in the 1300 block of N.W. Eugene, from which one person was taken by ambulance to a hospital with gunshot wounds that were considered potentially life-threatening, said police Lt. Joe Perry.
Eugene, which runs north and south, is located about a block west of N.W. Topeka Boulevard in the area involved.
Two other people later sought hospital treatment in Topeka after arriving by private vehicle after suffering from gunshot wounds, Perry said. The seriousness of their injuries wasn’t clear.
The names, ages and genders of those wounded weren’t available Sunday morning.
Two people were reportedly brought to police headquarters to be questioned, though no further information was readily available about the identity of those involved.
Police are preparing nationwide for unrest during the week of the presidential election, especially in Washington, D.C. Activist groups led by Black Lives Matter and Shutdown DC are reportedly assembling for a planned demonstration on Election Day in Black Lives Matter Plaza, which is a block from the White House, according to The Associated Press. They plan to live-stream the election results and include DJs and live music.
