Rolla Shooting

One person is dead and another is in jail following a disturbance that was reported in Rolla on Monday morning. Officers responded to a 9-1-1 call in the 1-thousand block of Morrell Avenue when 27-year-old Devon Johnson ran to neighbors home after he and 27- year- old Terry Brown exchanged gunfire. The two men had been involved in an argument over a child custody matter, when Brown went into his home, retrieved a gun, and fired shots at Johnson. Johnson then pulled a gun from his vehicle, and fired back, fatally wounding Brown, who died at an area hospital. Johnson is currently in custody on an outstanding warrant on unrelated charges.
