Authorities have released the name of a man killed while barging into a Topeka home.

Cpt. Jerry Stanley said Friday that the victim of Thursday night's shooting was 31-year-old Cyril K. Smith.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that he was one of at least two men who entered a Topeka house with several people inside. Gunfire erupted, and Smith was killed.

Police say one person believed to be linked to the case has been arrested, and several other people have been interviewed.

Stanley said the motive for the intrusion is being determined. But he stressed that there isn't an indication that it was a "random act" or that the public is in danger.

Police are asking the public to call with tips.
