Patrol: Missouri Man Dies After Being Shot By Police Officer
A central Missouri man has died after being shot by a police officer during a confrontation at a home, police said.
Brian Mummert, 44, of Sunrise Beach, was shot and killed Thursday night by a Laurie police officer, the Laurie Police Department said in a news release.
When the department was called to a report of domestic assault at a Laurie home on Care Free Lane at Park Place Mobile Home Park around 7:30 p.m, the officer approached Mummert on the porch and asked him to comply with orders after noticing a gun.
"Officers arrived on the scene and noticed the assault victim standing in the roadway while the suspect was standing on the porch of the residence. As officers approached the porch, they observed what appeared to be a firearm in the suspect's waistband. As officers attempted to get the suspect to comply with their commands, the suspect began to draw the weapon and one officer fired their duty weapon, striking the suspect," a Laurie press release stated.
"Officers began life-saving measures and requested Fire/Emergency management services to respond to the scene. Fire/EMS arrived and took over medical care of the suspect. The suspect was pronounced deceased on scene a short time later," according to Laurie's Police Chief Mike Nienhuis.
The officer was not injured.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol's Division of Drug and Crime Control is investigating the shooting.
