Man dies in shooting after police chase in SW Missouri

CARTHAGE, Mo. (AP) – Authorities say a 47-year-old man was shot and killed by
law enforcement officers after a police chase near Carthage. Police Chief Greg
Dagnan said the man was shot Sunday night after he exchanged gunfire with two
state patrol troopers and a Jasper County deputy. The patrol identified him
Monday as Brad Stirewalt of Diamond. Highway patrol trooper Sam Carpenter the
chase began when a Newton County deputy tried to stop an apparently intoxicated
driver. Stirewalt fled into Jasper County, where troopers and county deputies
joined the pursuit. Carpenter says the chase ended in Carthage, where he got out
of his truck and shot at the officers, who returned fire.
