KOSHKONONG, Mo. — A man accused of shooting four people in Koshkonong, Missouri, is charged in Oregon County Circuit Court.

Christopher L. Lindley, 28, is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action. He is being held without bond.

A press conference was hosted by Jeff Kinder, Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop G’s public information officer, and Sheriff Eric King with the Oregon County Sheriff’s Office after the shooting on April 10.

“They [victims] were initially taken to Ozarks Medical Center in West Plains, being transferred to Springfield area hospitals,” said Kinder.

One of the three people injured was from Oregon County while the other two were from out of state.

“Pretty, almost positive that at least one of the victims had interactions and knew each other,” said King.

King thanked all the agencies who got involved.

“We had Oregon County Sheriff’s Office, Thayer Police Department, Missouri State Highway Patrol, Fulton County Arkansas Sheriff’s Office, West Plains Police Department, Howell County and numerous calls from several other sheriffs and police chiefs offering help,” said King. “Appreciate that more than words can express.”

The investigation into the shooting at Snappy Mart Convenience Store is still ongoing.

Lindley will have a court appearance Wednesday morning at 11 in Oregon County.
