Missouri officers kill suspect, citing ‘imminent danger’

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Officers in Springfield, Missouri, fatally shot an Arkansas man after they decided he had put a girl and her kids in “imminent danger,” police said Saturday.

Police were called Friday night to a domestic disturbance at an apartment, where they said 28-year-old Mitchell R. Hooe of Arkansas was armed with a gun.

Officers confirmed that a woman and her children were in the apartment with Hooe. Police said in a news release that the woman was unable to speak freely “and it appeared she and her children were in imminent danger.”

The officers pressured their approach into the condominium and shot Hooe. He died on the scene.

Officers, the lady and the kids had been unharmed.

Police say the officers concerned are on administrative depart pending an inner investigation. Police didn’t disclose what number of officers had been concerned within the incident.
