Police officer killed, 2 other officers injured responding to 911 call

Police are on the scene of a shooting that left at least two officers injured

A Missouri police officer was killed and two others were injured Tuesday night when they responded to a 911 call in Clinton, WDAF reported.

Lowe says a SWAT team entered the residence but found the suspect dead at 12:10 a.m.

They've confirmed that 30-year-old Police Officer Christopher Ryan Morton was the one killed. When they went inside, the suspect shot and killed one officer and hurt two others.

Shots were fired at the Clinton officers soon after they arrived at the home at around 9:20 p.m. Clinton, with about 8,800 residents, is about 70 miles east of Kansas City.

Stosberg said the cause of the suspect's death is under investigation.

But for Graff and others in this town of about 8,800, the news of another fallen officer was hard to take. "Our thoughts are with Officer Morton's family, the two officers who were injured, and the Clinton Police Department". The 30-year-old had been with the department, then returned to the force after a shooting last year killed Clinton police officer Gary Michael.

Missouri Rep. Vicky Hartzler expressed grief for the fallen officer in a tweet.

"It's a small department", Sgt. Bill Lowe said, according to Fox News.

'We are saddened to hear the news regarding Clinton, Mo Police Officer Chris Morton this morning.

The shooting is seven months to the day since Clinton officer Gary Michael was shot and killed in the line of duty. In one era, they are called warriors.

"It's just devastating", Henry County Sheriff Kent Oberkrom said.

For the second time in under a year, the town of Clinton is mourning the loss of a police officer.

"His life clearly was one based on sacrifice and service, as he deployed twice with the Army National Guard before returning home to continue serving his country as a police officer", she said. At the time, it was the first officer to die in the line of duty in Clinton.

When Harley Graff heard about the shooting death of a police officer in Clinton late Tuesday, he looked to find out if it was an officer he knew.
