Man fatally shot on University of Missouri campus

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say an armed man was fatally shot inside a University of Missouri parking garage following a confrontation with police.

Columbia and university police say a college officer found the man late Wednesday on the garage's second floor and that shots were fired following an altercation between the two. A Columbia police officer arrived, and more shots were fired.

It wasn't immediately clear if an officer's bullet killed the man or if he shot himself.

Columbia police say a fingerprint scan will confirm the identity of the deceased. Authorities suspect the man is the same person wanted for hiding in a woman's vehicle and pointing a gun at her earlier in the day.

Both officers are on paid administrative leave while an investigation continues.
