JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A suspect in a double slaying in Missouri is in fair condition after being shot by police in the lobby of an upscale hotel in the state capital.

Dent County Sheriff Rick Stallings says law enforcement officers began pursuing 44-year-old Marvin Rice of Salem after a witness reported Rice shot a man and woman on Saturday.

Stallings says Rice led officers on a high-speed chase across rural Missouri before fleeing on foot into a prominent hotel near the Missouri state capitol. He was shot and wounded in an exchange of gunfire in the lobby.

I carried my 1-year-old daughter across the concrete floors and through the dry-walled rooms. The house is on the edge of town, near their church, behind the grain co-op. Their excitement was reserved.  Rightfully so: They recently sold their farmland — though it was for more money than they ever thought they’d get for it.
