HOLT'S SUMMIT — Central Missouri authorities are searching for leads in the apparent homicide of a former Jefferson City police officer.
Holt's Summit Police Chief Kyle McIntyre says 52-year-old Paul Plunkett was shot Saturday afternoon inside his home. His wife, Sandra, told police she saw a man dressed in camouflage standing in the road near their home. She says he pointed the gun at her before fleeing.
The Fulton Sun reported that McIntyre said no one is in custody and a suspect has not been named. But he says he believes Plunkett was targeted and the general public is not in danger.
Plunkett was operating a pest control business out of his home but was at home recovering from a recent surgery.
