It's a sad day for the Clinton County officers as they lost a dear friend and colleague in a crossfire on March 6, 2018.

A Missouri police officer was killed and two others were wounded on Tuesday after they were sent to the wrong house following a 911 call.

As three officers arrived at the home on West Grand River Street, a man started shooting with a semi-automatic rifle, and officers shot back in an attempt to arrest him. Once inside, the suspect surprised officers firing multiple shots with a semi-automatic rifle hitting three officers. After getting those officers out from the residence, they were transported to the hospital and treated for their injuries. The other officer's injuries were minor, the patrol said. The patrol says a SWAT team entered the home at 12:10 a.m. Wednesday but found the suspect dead. The cause of his death is unclear.
