The officers then engaged the suspect, later identified as 37-year-old James E. Waters.

"At that point in time the suspect shot and killed one of the Clinton Police officers". Two other officers are in stable condition and undergoing treatment for gunshot wounds - one in the arm and the other in the shoulder, he said.

Missouri Highway Patrol Sgt. Bill Lowe said Clinton County 911 dispatchers received a call at 9:20 p.m. Tuesday.
