The Boone County Sheriff’s Department continues to investigate a shooting last night in Sturgeon that sent one man to the hospital with critical injuries.
Investigators report they received a call around 6:30 last night to investigate a shooting at the old Heuers Country Store & Cafe.
When they arrived, they located the victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to a Columbia hospital where he remains in critical condition today.
One person at the scene was taken in for questioning, but deputies say he’s since been released.
According to a statement released by the sheriff, it appears several people had gathered at the location for an arranged meeting. At some point, the situation escalated with multiple armed subjects.
