Topeka police say a man likely was high on narcotics when he fired a gun and assaulted a police vehicle near the Washburn University campus.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports police were dispatched around 6:15 a.m. Monday on reports of shots fired.

A 31-year-old man who lives in an apartment across the street from the incident says he heard gunshots and stepped outside to find a man lying on the ground.

Jason How says the man jumped up when he saw a Washburn University police car arrive, then got onto the vehicle's hood and started attacking the car.

The officer walked to the back of the car, causing the man to jump down and go after him. How says another officer took the man into custody before he could attack.
