When process servers tried to deliver an eviction notice to a residence in the city of Independence, a shooting incident broke out that resulted in the deaths of two persons, including a police officer, according to Missouri authorities.

The gunfire started at a house close to the intersection of Bundschu and Elsa Smith Roads just after 1 p.m.

A civil process server was shooting at the property while trying to deliver court paperwork to an unnamed individual, the city—a satellite of Kansas City—said in a statement.

Then, as police arrived on the site, they were also fired upon. One of the three hit cops passed away.

During a news conference, Independence Police Chief Adam Dustman identified the deceased as Drexel Mack, a civil process server from Jackson County, and 35-year-old Independence police officer Cody Allen.

Dustman praised Allen, calling him a hero. “And unfortunately, he lost his life today serving his community.”

According to Dustman, it was anticipated that the two injured cops would fully recover. He said that one had minor wounds and the other needed emergency surgery.

“We are devastated for the loss that we and the court have suffered,” she remarked.

Mack was referred to as “a true public servant” by 16th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Jalilah Otto in a press conference.

Authorities added that a man suspect who has not been named has been placed under arrest.

At a separate press conference, Missouri State Highway trooper Justin Ewing informed reporters that the suspect had minor injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital.

On Thursday, Gov. Mike Parson stated on X that he was getting updates regarding the tragedy.

“Teresa and I are praying for the @IndepMoPolice officers involved and all who work to protect us,” he tweeted.
