Sedalia Police responded to the 500 block of East 2nd at 12:04 p.m. Monday after receiving a call about someone who had been shot.

Upon arrival, officers located the victim, identified as 32-year-old Sean Clark of Hughesville.

Clark was suffering from numerous gunshot wounds, and he was transported by PCAD from the scene and later flown to the University of Missouri Hospital in Columbia for medical treatment.

The SPD is currently investigating. Anyone with information on the case is urged to contact the department at 826-8100, according to Commander David Woolery.

Sedalia School District 200 said in a statement that as a precaution, it was not having any outside activities the rest of the afternoon and keeping students indoors until it was deemed safe.

Sedalia School District 200 Assistant Superintendent Todd Fraley spoke with KSIS this afternoon and gave us the following statement:

“We were made aware (of the situation) by Sgt. John Cline, our school resource officer, so as a precaution, even though there was no known nexus to any of our schools or students, we knew there was a shooting and a possible suspect at large. So as a precautionary measure, we decided to keep all our students inside, and have no outside activities, just in case that circumstances like that may bleed over into one of our areas to protect the kids,” Fraley said.

Fraley further explained that the situation prompted not a lockdown, but a “lock and teach” status, “and continue as normal.” The incident on East 2nd Street occurred just before lunchtime.

Two hours later, local authorities determined there was no known threat nexus to schools, so the district resumed normal daily activities.
