TOPEKA, Kan. (KAKE) - A Topeka police officer was shot in an exchange of gunfire with a murder suspect Thursday morning, according to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. 

Topeka officers responded around 9:30 a.m. to the report of a shooting in the 3500 block of SW Kelly Avenue. They arrived to find one person dead and another injured. The second person was taken to a local hospital and they are in stable condition as of the writing of this story. 

"Investigators with TPD quickly identified the suspect and began working to locate them," the KBI said. "The relationship between the suspect and the homicide victim was domestic in nature."

At around 10:40 a.m. Topeka officers located the suspect's car near the city's Hi-Crest neighborhood and a high-speed pursuit ensued. It ended near 6th and Kansas in downtown Topeka. 

The KBI said multiple agencies, including the Shawnee County Sheriff's Office, responded to the scene, where the suspect fired at law enforcement several times. Multiple officers returned fire. 

"At least one officer was struck by the suspect’s gunfire during this incident. The officer is receiving medical treatment at a local hospital," the KBI said in a release. 

The officer has since been treated and released. 

In a news conference with local law enforcement, they confirmed that the suspect was critically injured in the gunfire exchange and was taken to the hospital.

"This was a chaotic episode that was the result of a violent suspect who displayed extreme indifference to life and safety of those within my community," a Topeka police official said in the news conference. "His action were without regard to anyone else other than himself." 

The Kansas Bureau of Investigations will be leading an investigation into the incident.
