Man shot at least twice after allegedly attacking officer in Paris, Mo.

A man was recovering Friday from serious injuries after officers shot him twice in Paris, Mo.

The Missouri State Highway patrol says it all started just after midnight Friday when the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department says it got a report of a white male attempting to break into a vehicle using a hatchet in Madison, Missouri.

When a Monroe County sheriff’s deputy arrived at the scene, the deputy apparently observed the suspect in a vehicle and attempted to stop the vehicle.

Authorities say the suspect isKevin D. Marshall, 39, of Madison, Missouri.

Marshall allegedly failed to yield to the deputy and a chase started eastbound on U.S. Highway 24. A short time later, authorities ended the chase near Paris, Missouri.

Just after 1:00 Friday morning, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department says it saw Marshall walking southbound on Missouri 15, in Paris, Missouri.

Officers say they saw Marshall carrying a hatchet and a flashlight secured to a metal bat. Marshall allegedly approached Monroe County deputies in a threatening manner, refused officers demands and walked into to Hickman’s IGA.

Authorities say they called in a Monroe City Police Department canine unit to the scene and officers went into the business in an effort to take Marshall into custody.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that while inside the business, Marsall attacked a Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy. The patrol says during the scuffle a Monroe City police officer and a Monroe County Sheriff’s deputy fired their guns at Marshall.

Marshall was apparently hit at least twice. The patrol says he was taken to University Hospital in Columbia, Missouri, with serious injuries.

The patrol says a Monroe County deputy suffered minor injuries from Marshall during the attack and was taken to University Hospital in Columbia, Missouri by a private vehicle.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime Control is investigating the incident.
