Topeka murder suspect arrested in Nebraska after gun battle at convenience store

TOPEKA, Kan. - Police say a suspect in a Topeka homicide is in custody after he engaged law enforcement officers in two gunfights in Nebraska.

Topeka police say in a news release that 33-year-old Michael Dean Enstrom was arrested early Thursday after he allegedly robbed a convenience store and engaged in two gunfights in Johnson County, Neb., about 25 miles north of the Kansas-Nebraska border. One deputy was injured.

Enstrom's last known address was in Gardner, Kan.

He is a suspect in a shooting Wednesday in Topeka that left a 35-year-old man dead and a 28-year-old woman with non life-threatening injuries.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports police said earlier that a woman and girl were with the suspect when he fled Topeka but it was unclear if they were with him when he was arrested.
