ROGERSVILLE, Mo.- Four law enforcement agencies are investigating an officer-involved shooting from Thursday afternoon.

According to Webster County Sheriff Roye Cole, deputies responded to a domestic incident at a home on Highway B just north of Rogersville around 3 p.m.

The deputies returned fire and shot the suspect.

The Sheriff says the suspect was taken to the hospital in serious but stable condition; no officers were injured in the shooting.

Sheriff Cole says this is a “highly volatile and dangerous situation,” and the investigation is still on-going.

The four agencies investigating are the Greene, Lawrence, Webster County Sheriff’s Offices and the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the four agencies are part of a Sheriffs’ Critical Incident Team.
