On Monday, November 4, Michael D. Engstrom, age 33, of Topeka pleaded “no contest” to five felonies for firing shots at five law enforcement officers in Johnson County on February 13, 2013 during a police pursuit. Each of  the felony charges filed by Johnson County Attorney Julie D. Smith states that Engstrom intentionally or knowingly attempted to cause serious bodily injury to a peace officer while such officer was engaged in the performance of his  official duties.
