According to Missouri State Highway patrol, officers were responding to a call at a residence when the shooting took place. It's unclear how he died or his relationship with the women, who were not injured.

In yet another shocking shooting incident, an unfortunate death of a Clinton County police officer occurred. This is where Officer Gary Michael Jr. was shot and killed in the line of duty last summer. He is survived by his parents and siblings. "We are praying and ask that each of you pray for all involved and especially for the family of the officer who was killed in the line of duty this evening". That's when the Missouri Highway Patrol arrived to help. According authorities, Morton had been with the Clinton Police Department from February 2015 to January 2017. In one era, they are called warriors.

Sgt. Lowe said Morton had been with the department for a while. One of the wounded officers remained hospitalized Wednesday with moderate injuries. "Officer Christopher Ryan Morton gave the #UltimateSacrifice" she wrote.

As tragedy strikes the Clinton, Missouri Police Department for the second time in 7 months, we send our thoughts and prayers to the department and community.

Lowe said they believe they know who the shooter is, but will not release any information until they "are positive" about his identity.
