He faced charges in Harrisonville for illegal possession of a firearm.

He also served in the Army National Guard as a specialist.

Officer Christopher Ryan Morton, 30, was fatally shot while trying to apprehend the suspect. "Our thoughts are with his family today", the Royals said.

A suspect in the shooting also died, The Kansas City Star reported. He claims he's self-employed and a graduate of Westport High School.

Officers were sent to a home about 10 p.m. Tuesday after a frantic 911 call in which women were heard screaming in the background.

Morton had worked for the Clinton Police Department before Michael's death and returned to the department after he had died, Lowe said. One suffered "moderate" injuries while the other suffered minor injuries, according to a spokesperson for the Missouri Highway Patrol. Officer Nathan Bettencourt was in stable condition Wednesday.
