Authorities in Kansas City say a man suspected of leading police on a high-speed chase over two states has been fatally shot by officers.

Police say the man sped off, leading to a high-speed chase into Missouri. Police say the man was armed when he bailed out of the car and ran into a wooded area south of Platte City. Police and Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers soon surrounded the area and confronted the man, who was fatally shot. Police have not released the man's name or other details about the shooting. more
Police in south-central Missouri are investigating after mushroom hunters discovered a body in a rural, hand-dug water well. The discovery was made Sunday afternoon near the unincorporated community of Long Lane, about 35 miles northeast of Springfield. The Dallas County Sheriff's Office says in a Facebook post that the mushroom hunters came upon the well and were using a long limb to stick into the well to determine its depth when a body floated to the top. Authorities removed the body Monday morning, drained the well and searched the bottom of it for any evidence. An autopsy is scheduled Thursday to try to determine a cause of death and the person's identity. more

Anti-abortion rights protestors carried signs Tuesday that said “Ignore Roe” and “In God We Trust,” while their pro-abortion-rights counterparts held placards declaring “Bans off our Bodies” and “Impeach Kavanaugh.” One man with a bullhorn shouted, “Before the United States, before the constitution, there was God’s law.”The crowds were expected to build throughout the day as people finished work. Multiple pro-rights groups called for a 5 p.m. mass-gathering at the court. A leaked draft opinion shows that a majority of theS upreme Court is prepared to overrule Roe v. Wade. more
A man whose death sentence for killing a Missouri couple while robbing their home was overturned three times is scheduled to be executed. Carman Deck would be just the fifth U.S. inmate to be executed this year if his lethal injection goes ahead Tuesday evening. His hopes for a reprieve were all but dashed on Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court turned aside an appeal and Republican Gov. Mike Parson declined Deck’s clemency request, though he could file new appeals. Deck was convicted in the 1996 deaths of James and Zelma Long at their home in De Soto. more
Federal water officials have announced that they will keep hundreds of billions of gallons of Colorado River water inside Lake Powell instead of letting it flow downstream to southwestern states and Mexico. U.S. Assistant Secretary of Water and Science Tanya Trujillo said Tuesday that the move would allow the Glen Canyon Dam to continue producing hydropower while officials strategize how to operate the dam with a lower water elevation. The decision will not have any immediate impacts on the amount of water allocated for the region’s cities and its farm but reflects the compounding challenges facing the region, where roughly 40 million people and a $5 billion-a-year agricultural industry rely on the Colorado River. more
Arkansas has built up a surplus of nearly $1 billion for the fiscal year more quickly than expected. The Department of Finance and Administration on Tuesday said the state’s net available revenue for the fiscal year, which began July 1. totals $6.1 billion. That’s $987.9 million more than forecast and $736 million higher than at the same point last year. Gov. Asa Hutchinson last month said he was considering calling a special session to look at uses for the surplus after finance officials said they expected it to hit $1 billion by the end of the fiscal year. more
Federal regulators are recommending that the Army Corps of Engineers decline to reissue a key permit for the proposed PolyMet copper-nickel mine. The Environmental Protection Agency says the project could raise levels of mercury and other pollutants downstream from the site in northeastern Minnesota. It’s just a recommendation, but Minnesota Public Radio reports it could deal a severe blow to the $1 billion mine if the Army Corps accepts the advice. The EPA announced its position at the start of a three-day hearing in Carlton. PolyMet says it's confident the Corps will affirm the permit after it considers all the evidence. more
A 14-year-old Missouri boy who fell to his death from a 430-foot drop-tower ride in central Florida’s tourist district appeared to slip out of his seat at the halfway mark of its plunge to the ground. That's according to a law enforcement report released Tuesday through a public records request. The incident report says the father of a friend of Tyre Sampson who witnessed the March 24 accident told deputies that the teen appeared to fall out of his seat when plunging passengers on the Free Fall ride passed a point that was halfway down the tower. Last week, Sampson’s parents sued the ride’s owner, manufacturer and landlord, saying they were negligent. more

Two Columbia police officers will not face charges for shooting and killing a man during an altercation outside a nightclub. St. Charles County Tim Lohma said in a news release Tuesday the officers were justified in believing that Quillan Jacobs was a threat to their lives and others when they shot him outside the Vibez Lounge on Nov. 14. Police said Jacobs and another man were shooting at each other when officers arrived. They said Jacobs fired into the crowd outside the lounge as he fled. Five people were injured. A second man, Todd Nesbitt Jr., was arrested after the shooting and charged with first-degree assault and armed criminal action.  more
Missouri is slated to ban most abortions if the U.S. Supreme Court undoes Roe v. Wade. Republican Attorney General Eric Schmitt on Tuesday said he will take immediate action to allow an abortion ban to take effect if the landmark ruling is overturned, as a draft opinion leaked late Monday suggests. Missouri's GOP-led Legislature passed the abortion ban in in 2019 in hopes that the 1973 ruling would later be tossed out. Abortions would only be allowed to save the life of the mother. Anyone who performs an unlawful abortion would face 5 to 15 years in prison.  more
