State officials to give statement on fatal shooting of Clinton police officer

The Topeka Police Department tweeted Wednesday, "The unimaginable hurt in Clinton, MO PD and Community for their fallen Officer- OFC Morton- only 30 years old".

The Clinton officers were serving civil process paperwork at a home on Grandriver St. about 25 miles outside Kansas City on Tuesday when shots rang out, FOX 4 reported. Authorities were then shot at by the suspect.

It was later confirmed that the suspect was found dead inside the house.

The police officers were shot at when they entered the home, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said. It is unclear if Waters took his own life or if he was killed when officers shot back.

Collin Stosberg says the officers went to the home in Clinton on Tuesday night in response to a 911 call in which a disturbance could be heard.

According to Morton's Facebook page, the officer graduated from Knob Noster High School, he attended the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg and served in the National Guard as well as the US Army. Officer Gary Michael, 37, had pulled over a vehicle for a suspected registration violation when a shooter got out of the auto and fired at him. After doing so the officers engaged with the suspect.

Officer Nicholas Kasper was treated and released from an area hospital.

Clinton Police Officer Ryan Morton was killed in the line of duty after responding to a 911 call.

Major League Baseball pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, who played for the Royals when Morton was honored, also retweeted a photo of them together. One suffered "moderate" injuries while the other suffered minor injuries, according to a spokesperson for the Missouri Highway Patrol.

"Idk what to say right now", Justin McCoy posted to Facebook.

He returned to full-time duty one month after Michael's death. Always in a great mood and would do anything for anyone. "Christopher Ryan Morton was one of the nicest guys I have ever had the pleasure of knowing".
