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.

Another broken link to the farm

Last month I took a tour of my wife’s grandparent’s new home in the western Minnesota town of Chokio, population around 400. 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.
