Three injured in Centerville shooting

Police in Centerville say three men were injured after being shot outside the Ernest Smith Housing Complex this morning. Detectives received a call just before 3 o'clock reporting shots fired. The men were allegedly involved in a dice game earlier in the night when a fight broke out. About an hour-and-a-half after the fight, at least one suspect returned to settle the score. Police say it is unclear how many suspects were involved. The injuries are not considered life threatening.

Charges are filed against two men who allegedly broke into a woman's home on Tuesday.

Police say Terrill Wise and Jahon Anderson kicked down the door of the woman's home on Lafayette near I-44. The woman grabbed her one-year-old child and hid in a shower in the upstairs bathroom. The mother says she heard the suspects moving throughout her home and one even came into the bathroom but did not see her. The woman called 911 and when an officer arrived, he confronted the suspects.

The officer says a suspect attacked him and that is when he shot the man. Other officers responded to the scene and both suspects were captured. Wise and Anderson now face multiple felony charges.

The woman and her child were not hurt.

ASHLAND, Mo. (AP) - Police in central Missouri say a teenager shot and killed himself as he was being taken into custody for allegedly sending a text threatening school violence.

The shooting happened around 2 a.m. Tuesday near Ashland. The name of the 17-year-old student has not been released.

Boone County Maj. Tom Reddin says the teen sent a text to another student Monday night saying something dramatic was going to happen at school Tuesday, something that would include loss of life.

The family of the teen who received the text contacted police. Reddin says that as officers went to take in the teen who sent the message, he asked to get dressed.

Reddin says that's when the teen went into the home, retrieved a handgun and shot himself in the chest.

FRANKFORD, Mo. (AP) - A 45-year-old suburban St. Louis man accused of shooting his adult son to death told a northeast Missouri deputy that "he had no other choice."

Michael Lee Phillips of St. John is charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action after the shooting death of 22-year-old Jeff Chisholm in rural Pike County last Saturday night.

The Quincy Herald-Whig reports that Phillips said he first fired a warning shot that didn't dissuade his son from advancing as they fought.

A probable cause statement says witnesses reported Chisholm arguing with his girlfriend and then his mother as she tried to prevent her son from driving after he had been drinking.

Phillips was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning. Online court records do not list an attorney on his behalf.

STEELVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri murder case will hinge on claims of self-defense and whether a property owner had the right to shoot a canoer who may have intruded on his land.

James Crocker had grown weary of the people encroaching on his property along the Meramec River. A nasty confrontation in July ended when Crocker allegedly shot and killed Paul Dart Jr., who was on a canoe trip.

Defense attorney Michael Bert says Crocker is covered by the state's castle doctrine, which allows the use of deadly force to protect property. Bert says Crocker also felt his life was in danger.

Prosecutors cited witnesses who said Crocker flew into a rage and opened fire after a man relieved himself near his yard. He has been charged with second-degree murder.
