Police are still searching for suspects in a fatal weekend shooting that left three people dead and wounded two others in downtown Lawrence. Captain Anthony Brixius (BRICK-see-ess) says numerous people witnessed the fatal shooting early Sunday morning and police want to speak with them.

Two men and a woman were killed in the shooting. Captain Brixius says one of the wounded victims - a 28-year-old Topeka man - was treated for his injuries and released. But another victim, a 19-year-old Topeka man, remains hospitalized in stable condition.
