Missouri police were sent to the wrong address earlier this week when responding to a 911 call that led to a the fatal shooting of an officer and suspect inside the residence, Missouri Highway Patrol said.


There, an armed suspect allegedly fired at officers from inside the house, killing officer Christopher Morton and injuring two other officers. The Clinton Police Department, SWAT teams and the Henry County Sheriff's Department subsequently engaged in a standoff with the suspect. After midnight, officers raided the home and found the suspect, James Waters, dead.

But Missouri Highway Patrol Sgt. Bill Lowe told reporters Thursday that the 911 actually came from a residence in Windsor, Mo., about 15 miles away.

UPI story ends here.

The person inside the home was killed. POLICE say was a standoff. and they later found the "suspect" dead.

How the fuck is this guy any suspect?

Everybody are proclaiming the cops as heroes and already dug up dirt on the home owner.

...oh did I mention the guy was black. His mug shot for a prior arrest years ago is already up.

The guy shot the cops with an AR-15. great for home defense....unless you're defending your home from cops at the wrong address. Then your ass is gonna be dead anyway.

Sounds like the dispatch fk’ed up. Since usually they just say “oops” and move on when they arrive at the wrong house and the homeowner is killed, this time one of their own was killed, so maybe they will rethink their tactics. Maybe.

Wow! What a royal screw up! The cops were way out of line here. Just like the "Swatting" incident a few months back. With today's technology, or a damn bullhorn, why can't a small amount of communication be set up before blazing away?

Don't be stupid. Why would he be shooting at the cops? The cops come in your door they yell, "POLICE".

Maybe this guy has been watching all the videos of police shooting unarmed citizens, and decided to take his chance. The only question cons should ask is “was this a gun free zone”?

Too many details missing in this story.

What was the original call for?

Why would this guy open fire on cops outside his house?

Were the cops shooting into the house before entering?

How long do we wait to blame the gun?

That is the tyranny the 2 A is warning us of, LE showing up accidentally at the wrong address. This is an example of how the 2 A can be used to defend oneself from that mean militia.

I would bet the dead cops as much as the surviving ones wish that guy would not have been able to own an AR-15. But hey, tough luck.
