TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a gunman who entered a veteran's administration medical center in Topeka, Kan., has surrendered after trading his ammunition for cigarettes.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported on its Web site that a SWAT team and multiple law enforcement agencies had responded to a report of a gunman at Colmery-O'Neil VA Medical Center early Sunday afternoon.

Authorities tell the newspaper the gunman surrendered by 1:45 p.m. after ejecting rounds from his weapon in exchange for cigarettes and laying the gun on the ground.

There were no reports of injuries or shots fired.

Calls that The Associated Press made to Topeka police and the Veteran's Administration were not immediately returned.
