New info released about Fulton officer-involved shooting

Cody McCaulou

The city of Fulton releases new information about an officer-involved shooting last month.

It was December 30th when Cody McCaulou, 25, of Columbia, was shot near McIntire Elementary School.  He died the following day at a Columbia hospital.

KRCG reports court records, released yesterday, show Fulton Police received a tip the day of the shooting from a concerned caller who reported a large meth deal was going down near the school.  When an officer responded and eventually attempted to approach a car from the scene, driven by McCaulou, he allegedly accelerated toward the officer who shot him once in the head.

The shooting remains under investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol's Division of Drug and Crime Control.
