Police have identified the gunman responsible for a series of shootings in a small south central Missouri community as 36-year-old Joseph Jesse Aldridge. Officials have also identified some of the seven victims in the case as family members of the shooter.
Nine people were found dead and one injured at several different locations in and around a small Missouri community called Tyrone Thursday night into Friday morning. Police have confirmed Aldridge is among the dead, in what appears to be a suicide.
Sgt. Jeff Kinder of the Missouri State Highway Patrol told reporters, “This is also hard on the police officers who were working that there. It’s not natural to see that sort of thing and I’m sure they were as shocked as a lot of the people were,”
