Officer-Involved Shooting Leaves One Suspect Dead near Osage Beach

Troopers with the Missouri State Highway Patrol says one person is dead following an officer-involved shooting in Laurie.

Reports say 44-year-old Brian Mummert was shot and killed Thursday night by an officer with the Laurie Police Department.

According to investigators, the officer approach Mummert on the front porch of a home on Park Place near State Highway O at around 7:30 and asked him to comply once he saw a gun.

They say Mummert attempted to draw the weapon, at which point the officer in question opened fire.

Records show that EMS and fire crews were called to the scene to perform life-saving measures, but Mummert died at the scene.

The Highway Patrol says they have now taken over the investigation.
