MISSOURI SHOOTING: Nine people are dead, including the gunman, in a shooting in southeastern Missouri. There are four confirmed crime scenes in Tyrone, two more possible in Shannon County.
According to the Texas County Sheriff’s Department, a juvenile female called the department around 10:15 p.m. and said she heard gunshots in her home. After hearing the gunshots, the girl fled to a neighbor’s home and notified police.
When police arrived to the home they found two people dead of gunshot wounds. Upon further investigation, five other bodies were found and one injured person throughout three different homes in Tyrone, Missouri.
The body of an elderly woman was also found in one of the homes, but she appears to have died due to natural causes, police say.
Sergeant Jeff Kinder says the 36-year-old suspect was found dead in Shannon County early Friday from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Source: KMOV
