Murder Charges Filed: Joplin Shooting Leaves One Dead

Updated:

Joplin Police say the Jasper County Prosecutor's Office filed charges of first degree murder and armed criminal action today (June 11, 2018).

On June 9th around 2:08 p.m. Joplin Police responded to Interstate 249 about a shooting (near mile marker 0.0). They arrived to find 27-year-old David C. Reynolds of Carthage with life threatening injuries. He was taken to Mercy Hospital where he died from his injuries on June 10th just after 3:00 p.m.

The person believed to be the shooter, 23-year-old Christopher D. Montz, was still on scene. He was arrested and taken to jail. Today, the prosecutor's office filed charges of first degree murder and armed criminal action against Montz.

Reporter Kate Kelley spoke to Reynolds' wife today. We'll have more on the KOAM/FOX 14 Evening News.

The Joplin Police Department is still investigating, but they believe the incident was a case of road rage. Police think both ended up pulling over to the shoulder of the Interstate where the shooting happened outside the vehicles. They don't believe the men knew each other before this encounter.
