Murder-suicide in NW Missouri involved neighbors
EXCELSIOR SPRINGS (AP) - Excelsior Springs police say two men who died in a murder-suicide were neighbors.
Police on Tuesday announced that 53-year-old Timothy Todd Logan shot and killed 49-year-old Cletis Southwick Friday outside an Excelsior Spring home. Southwick then ran to a neighbor for help.
The Kansas City Star reports officers saw Logan, armed with a rifle, running away and set up a perimeter. Officers heard a single gunshot and found Logan dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Southwick died Sunday at Liberty Hospital.
A motive for the shooting has not been made public.
