From AP: Police were scouring central Missouri on Wednesday for a man they called a person of interest in overnight shootings that left three people dead and one wounded. (Note from James: I believe this happened near Holts Summit, which is close to Jeff City.)
Police said they were seeking Joshua William Maylee, who was believed to be armed, possibly with a high-powered rifle. Authorities warned that anyone who has had "negative" contact with Maylee to call police. Authorities did not have an age for Maylee.
Sgt. Robert Bruchsaler, a spokesman for the Mid-Missouri Major Case Squad, said Wednesday that the gunman used a high-powered rifle and a handgun. He said authorities believe the gunman acted alone.
