Shootings in Willard were murder, suicide

Before the shootings, deputies tried to investigate a report of a man pointing a gun at a woman; it turned out to be the same couple who later were found dead.


Storm Team Forecast Discussion

High pressure will be moving away and bring a bit more of a southerly breeze today. Scattered clouds will develop but I don't expect rain. Highs will again reach the middle 80s today in most locations. Storms in Kansas will run out of steam as they head toward western Missouri late tonight, but a few may spill across the border and affect central Missouri. Clouds will increase on Wednesday along with the south wind, and a few isolated storms may develop as moisture increases. Highs will be in the 80s again. By Thursday, a strong cold front will move in and with sufficient moisture and strong lift a line of storms are expected to develop with the potential for high wind gusts. Behind this windy and cool weather will prevail for Friday and Saturday.
