One Clinton police officer killed, two others hurt in shooting

Officer Christopher Morton

Lowe also mentioned that the reason for the police officers entering the home in an attempt to apprehend the suspect is still unknown.

For many living in Clinton, they woke up on Wednesday in shock hearing that another officer was killed.

Officers went to a home in Clinton, Missouri Tuesday night in response to a 911 call in which no one was on the line but a disturbance could be heard in the background, according to Missouri Highway Patrol Sgt. Collin Stosberg. The town will now have to support the family of fallen officer Christopher Morton.

The identities of the suspect nor the officers were immediately released. After doing so the officers engaged with the suspect.

The Clinton Police Department, SWAT teams and the Henry County Sheriff's Department subsequently engaged in a standoff with the suspect. Two others were in stable condition and being treated for gunshot wounds - one in the arm and the other in the shoulder.

The two women heard in the 911 call were unharmed, Lowe stated.

Authorities say Clinton, Mo Officer Christopher Ryan Morton, who was killed in a shooting that wounded two other officers, served with "distinction".

Our heartfelt condolences to the Clinton, MO Police Department who had another one of their officers killed in the line of duty overnight.

Clinton, along Missouri Highway 7, is a waypoint for Kansas City travelers headed to the Ozarks.

The officer was honored for his military service by the Kansas City Royals in June 2014, as shown in the above photo. One suffered "moderate" injuries while the other suffered minor injuries, according to a spokesperson for the Missouri Highway Patrol. Always in a great mood and would do anything for anyone. "Gary Michael was the first one we lost, now another one, I don't know what to think about it". Always could count on him to be there to talk when you needed it. "Everyone's thoughts and prayers would be appreciated".

"Idk what to say right now", Justin McCoy wrote.

Court records show Waters had a history of convictions for drugs and resisting arrest.
