TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Police in Topeka are investigating two separate shooting incidents that happened hours apart and resulted in three deaths.

The first shooting was reported around 8 p.m Monday, and arriving officers found two victims with gunshot wounds, police said in a news release. One victim had non-life threatening injuries and is expected to recover. The other victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was identified by police as Harry T. Jenkins, 66, of Topeka.

Just before 2 a.m. Tuesday, officers responded to another shooting and found two victims with gunshot wounds dead inside a home, police said. Police later identified them as Crystal D. Andrews, 37, and Mercedes M. Holford, 13, both of Topeka.
