The Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating an officer-involved shooting in Miller County. According to information released by the Patrol, the incident occurred May 21 at about 2:26 a.m. Two deputies responded to a residence near St. Anthony for a reported domestic assault.

While attempting to detain a 35 year old male inside the home, he resisted.
