Missouri officers kill man suspected of killing brother, dad


POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. (AP) — Investigators say southeast Missouri sheriff’s deputies shot and killed a man who they suspect had killed his father and brother before officers arrived. The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Butler County deputies shot 45-year-old Justin Morgan, who was armed when he confronted them outside a home near Poplar Bluff on Thursday afternoon. Deputies later found 76-year-old Norman Morgan and 47-year-old Timothy Morgan dead, apparently from gunshot wounds, inside the house. The patrol said Norman Morgan was Timothy and Justin Morgan’s father. The investigation is continuing. No information about a possible motive has been released.
