A Clinton, Mo., police officer was killed and two others were shot Tuesday night while responding to a 911 call. The suspect is dead.
Missouri Highway Patrol Sgt. Bill Lowe said the 911 call came about 9:20 p.m. Tuesday from a home near downtown Clinton. During the call, two women were heard screaming in the background, and police officers were dispatched.
Officers arrived at the home at 9:25 p.m. and were fired on, Lowe said. Officers entered the residence as a suspect retreated inside. The three officers were shot, including one officer who died inside the home.
The suspect was found dead by a Missouri Highway Patrol SWAT team, the Kansas City Star reports.
