Authorities Piecing Together Motive For Manchester Murder


Authorities in Scott County are still trying to piece together the motive for a shooting that left five members of one family dead. The murders happened early this morning in Manchester about 50 miles west of Springfield.

 

Police believe 43-year-old Rick O’Dell Smith forced his way into the home and killed the five victims, including two children. Another child was injured. Police say Smith brought her out of the home and handed her to a neighbor before fleeing. She is in critical condition at St John’s Hospital. Smith died later after being shot in a gunfight with police.

 

Authorities are still investigating the relationship between Smith and the victims. They have not officially released the victim’s names yet.
