Original Information Released October 3rd, 2013:

Today, at approximately 4 PM, the sheriff’s office received a call on a burglary in progress. The location of the incident was in the 40200 block of E. Campbell Road north of Oak Grove, Missouri.

The suspects were reportedly seen burglarizing the home and confronted by a relative of the homeowner. According to the witness, as the suspects were leaving, they attempted to run him over. He then shot toward the suspects.

A deputy was near I-70 and M–291 when he observed the suspect vehicle heading north on M-291.  After a short pursuit, the deputy was able to take the male suspect into custody.

At the same time, sheriff’s deputies received information a female had been dropped off at a local hospital with a gunshot wound.

We have been able to confirm the female was involved in the burglary. Therefore, both suspects are in custody.  The male was not injured.
