MSHP: Investigation complete on fatal officer-involved shooting in Sedalia
SEDALIA, Mo. (KY3) - The Missouri State Highway Patrol has completed its investigation on a fatal officer-involved shooting in Pettis County last month.
Officials from MSHP Troop A say they’ve delivered their findings to the Pettis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for review.
Hannah Fizer, 25, was shot and killed during a traffic stop last June near U.S. Route 50 in Sedalia.
According to a preliminary investigation, the deputy indicated Fizer refused to identify herself, stated she was armed and verbally threatened to shoot the deputy.
Investigators who searched her car did not find a weapon, according to patrol spokesman Bill Lowe. Days following the shooting, he said no new information was available to explain why the situation escalated into a shooting. No one else was injured during the confrontation.
A protest is planned for Saturday at the Pettis County Courthouse in response to Fizer’s death.
