CSW UPDATE: Three Shootings Sunday Morning Were University of Central Missouri Students

Reported here at CSW Sunday morning was what appeared to be a double shooting in or near Knob Noster in far-eastern Johnson County MO around 1:30 a.m....

I've found a media source- "db" who reports that the double shooting took place in the parking lot of Do Drop Inn in Knob Noster.

Both victims were University of Central Missouri (UCM) students and one was a football player for the UCM Mules.

The source reports the football player as "sophomore Paul Hughes of St. Louis, is in Research Hospital in Kansas City, with wounds in the stomach and leg."

The male who was LifeFlighted from the scene was identified by the source as "UCM broadcast media major Paul Hughes" who was also- according to the source- "shot in the stomach and leg about 1:30 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of the Do Drop Inn, on U.S. 50 in Knob Noster."

There wasn't any report of any arrests in these shootings.

Another shooting- also monitored here at CSW- occurred Sunday morning much closer to UCM's Warrensburg campus.

Emergency services were sent to the 400 block of West South Street at 2:42 a.m..

There was reported to be a male who was shot in a leg at the location.

Media source db says that "a UCM student" was shot in his left leg- was treated at the Warrensburg hospital- then released.

db reports a suspect was arrested at a  McDonald's less than 45 minutes after the shooting was reported.

Do Drop In--really??

Serious story, but funny name.

Super glad they got the bad guy--looks like a fine citizen.

Oh yeah- I've been getting calls there every so often for several years.

The perp is from the 2nd shooting call I got from JoCoMO that morning- was actually in W-Burg and not related to the Do Drop Inn incident.

I sure hope the UCM football player is okay- damn- a person can't even party these days w/o the threat of getting shot!
