Missouri policeman killed in shootout; suspect also dies

It's not clear if Waters, 37, was living there. Officer Gary Michael, 37, had pulled over a vehicle for a suspected registration violation when the alleged shooter got out of his auto and fired at him. Two others were hurt in the shooting and treated for their injuries. Officer Nicholas Kasper suffered gunshot wounds.

Around the time of 12:10 a.m. March 7, 2018, the S.W.A.T. team entered the premises, but when they looked inside, they found that the shooting suspect was already dead. The shooter barricaded himself in the home, leading to a almost two-hour standoff. On Wednesday afternoon, authorities said a woman inside that home had been charged with possession of methamphetamine with intention to distribute. Her bond was set at $25,000.

"Our community has lost another public servant due to a police officer involved shooting". The suspect remains barricaded inside the home. At least 50 officers from various law enforcement agencies were sent to the home. Waters was the only person in the home. "It is tragic that happened". They then regrouped so they could go back into the house.

The injured officers were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The incident took place after the cops responded to a 911 call on which two women were heard screaming.

Authorities said Waters was also wanted in for questioning in connection with a rape case.

He was convicted of crimes including robbery in 1999, drug possession in 2009 and the latest charge of resisting arrest in 2013. He served stints in prison from October 2000 through November 2002, May 2003 through April 2008, July 2008 through October 2012, and May 2014 through last July, according to Missouri Department of Corrections spokesman Garry Brix.
