Missouri Police Fatally Shoot Armed Tulsa Man During Traffic Stop

Posted: Updated:
NEOSHO, Missouri -

A 52-year-old Tulsa man was fatally shot early Thursday during a traffic stop by a Neosho, Missouri, police officer when he got out of his vehicle and pointed a gun at the officer, Neosho Police said.

The man has been identified by the Newton County Coroner as Joshua D. Daniels. 

The officer attempted to pull over Daniels a little after 2 a.m. on July 20, 2017, at 12009 E. Highway 86 near Neosho after receiving a report that Daniels was possibly intoxicated, police said. 

Daniels attempted to drive away from the traffic stop and the officer stopped him again, police say. At that time, Daniels got out of his vehicle as the officer got out of his vehicle, at which time, Daniels "removed a handgun from behind his body and raised it towards the officer," Neosho police said. 

The officer shot Daniels and the wound was fatal, police said.

The officer wasn't injured. 

The NPD has turned the case over to the Missouri Highway Patrol Criminal Investigation Division of Drug and Crime Control. 

Daniels' body was taken to Kansas City for an autopsy.
