Resident injured in Kansas group home shooting

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas agency says a survivor of a weekend shooting that left four other people dead at a Topeka, Kansas, group home was a resident of the site.

Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services spokeswoman Angela de Rocha said Monday that the resident, who wasn’t identified, was being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Police say the suspected gunman, 25-year-old Joshua Gueary, on Sunday killed 29-year-old Larry Gueary, 20-year-old Soren Galvez and 64-year-old Jesus Galvez before killing himself.

A lawyer for the Topeka home’s owners, Jonathan and Gina Allen, said Monday that the three people slain worked at the home. Pedro Irigonegaray says Larry Gueary was the suspected gunman’s brother and Jesus and Soren Galvez were Gina Allen’s father and brother, respectively.

Police have not released a possible motive.
