VIDEO: Missouri Officer Seriously Wounded by Shooting Suspect

A Monroe City, MO, police officer was shot and seriously wounded Wednesday night by a man accused of shooting two other people, police say.

Chief Darren Freidank stated in a release that one of the police officers was shot while on duty and was being treated Thursday. Marion County Sheriff Jimmy Shinn previously told WGEM News the officer pulled over a vehicle Timothy Brokes was driving when Brokes shot him. The officer shot Brokes, and Brokes was taken into custody.

Both were taken to hospitals for treatment.

Freidank states Brokes was treated at a local hospital and taken to Adams County Jail, where he was held on a $100,000 cash-only bond issued by Ralls County Associate Circuit Judge David Mobley. Brokes appeared before a judge Thursday morning, where he signed extradition papers, the circuit clerk's office told WGEM News. Shinn says he was then taken back to Marion County jail.

Freidank did not release the name of the officer.
