Missouri man shot after chase in fair condition

Missouri man suspected in double slaying in fair condition after being shot in hotel lobby By The Associated Press

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) ' A suspect in a double slaying in Missouri is in fair condition after being shot by police in the lobby of an upscale hotel in the state capital.

Dent County Sheriff Rick Stallings says law enforcement officers began pursuing 44-year-old Marvin Rice of Salem after a witness reported Rice shot a man and woman on Saturday.

Stallings says Rice led officers on a high-speed chase across rural Missouri before fleeing on foot into a prominent hotel near the Missouri state capitol. He was shot and wounded in an exchange of gunfire in the lobby.

A spokeswoman at University Hospital in Columbia said Sunday morning that Rice was in fair condition.

He is a former sheriff's deputy.

Authorities have not yet released the identities of the man and woman killed.
