TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Topeka police reversed course on whether a suspect in a homicide late last week has been taken into custody.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1nHQeOw ) reported Sunday that a watch commander had confirmed an arrest had been made in connection with a homicide that happened Friday. But a news release sent out Sunday evening said the arrest in Independence, Missouri, was only on a narcotics warrant.

Police spokesman Brian Desch says there has been no arrest in the killing and the case continues to be investigated.

A man was shot and killed at a Topeka home Friday afternoon following a verbal exchange with another man driving a silver Dodge Magnum station wagon. Witnesses told police the car’s driver fired eight to 10 shots in rapid fashion at the victim before driving away.
