TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Topeka police say a man who was shot at a gas station was protecting a woman who had been kidnapped by an ex-boyfriend.

Thirty-five-year-old Bryon Snyder was one of three men who hid the woman Monday inside a BP gas station when a gunman opened fire. The other two men and the woman weren’t shot. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1iRZkcL ) Snyder was in serious condition Tuesday.

Police say Daniel Lynn Cregut fled and prompted a four-hour standoff at a Topeka house before surrendering. He is jailed on $1 million bond.

Prosecutors say the woman found Cregut in her home Monday when she returned from work. She persuaded him to take her for cigarettes and escaped into the gas station. Snyder was holding the front door when he was shot.
