A Bourbon, Mo., police officer shot and killed a man Wednesday morning after he eluded police during a pursuit, according to authorities.

The incident happened at about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in Crawford County. Gary E. Wenzel, 50, was killed, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The Missouri Highway Patrol said a Bourbon police officer tried to stop a black Chevrolet Cavalier in Bourbon after recognizing it as a vehicle that had eluded police in Sullivan during a pursuit. The vehicle did not stop, and the pursuit continued north from Bourbon and into Gasconade County, and then south back into Crawford County.

The pursuit ended at Route J and Fann Road, where the Cavalier crashed and the officer shot Wenzel.

The officer was not hurt. The investigation is continuing.
