LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - One of three Topeka men charged in a triple homicide in downtown Lawrence has pleaded guilty to attempted voluntary manslaughter.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports 23-year-old Ahmad Rayton was scheduled to go to trial Monday but accepted the plea deal Wednesday. He had previously been charged with two counts of attempted second-degree murder and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Sentencing is scheduled for May 8.

The shootings in October 2017 involved two groups of Topeka men who had previous confrontations. They fired about 20 shots, killing three and injuring two others.

Twenty-year-old Dominique McMillon pleaded guilty in March to misdemeanor battery and was released from jail.



A third suspect, 22-year-old Anthony Roberts Jr. is scheduled for trial in June on three counts of murder.
