3 Topeka Men Face Federal Weapons Charges

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Three Topeka men face federal charges after several recent shootings in a Topeka neighborhood. The U.S. Attorney's office for Kansas says it's working with the Shawnee County District Attorney's Office to address gang violence in Topeka. U.S. Attorney for Kansas Barry Grissom said the goal is to use "combined resources to make the community safer." The prosecutor's office says 35-year-old Royelle Lamont Miller, 37-year-old Dante Rovon Peppers, and 26-year-old Daimon Sentrell Jackson, all of Topeka, were indicted on federal charges of being felons in possession of firearms. Online court records don't list lawyers for any of the defendants. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that eight shootings police say were gang-related were reported between July 6 and July 18 in one Topeka neighborhood.
