From the October 9, 2009 Springfield, Missouri News-Leader:
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Law officers now say a man killed near Jefferson City apparently was shot by one of the residents in the mobile home he and others were trying to rob.
The Cole County sheriff’s office previously had said that 19-year-old Lamar Gardner, of Kansas City, appeared to have been shot accidentally by another robber.
But Sgt. Bob Bruchsaler (Brook’-say-ler) said Friday that an adult resident of the home now says he fired the shot in defense of the two other adults and two children living there. He did not identify the person.
