Sheriff: 2 Killed in Murder-Suicide in Southwest Missouri
The St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department says the deaths of two men in a shooting at a convenience store appear to be a murder-suicide.
KYTV reports the shooting happened Friday morning at “The Port” convenience store in Osceola.
Sheriff Scott Keeler says he believes the deaths stemmed from a child custody dispute. He says it appears one man shot the other man before turning shooting himself. The men’s identities have not been released.
No children were with either of the men at the time of the shooting.
The sheriff is turning over the investigation to the Missouri Highway Patrol.
