March 7, 2019

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say a man shot and killed in Springfield was wanted on federal drug trafficking crimes.

Police say the man killed Tuesday evening was 36-year-old Jared Kelly, of Springfield.

U.S. Marshals Service supervisory deputy Darren Lane says a federal arrest warrant was issued for Kelly in February 2018.

Lane says U.S. Marshals shot Kelly when he showed a firearm while the investigators were trying to arrest him at a shopping center.

The Springfield News-Leader reports federal court records show Kelly was indicted by a grand jury last month on drug and weapons charges.
