The Missouri State Highway Patrol has identified a motorist shot and killed by a trooper as a Nebraska resident.
The patrol said Wednesday that 50-year-old Thomas E. Schroeder, of Omaha, was the man who struggled with a trooper trying to make an arrest Monday evening in far northwest Missouri.
Patrol officials said Schroeder had several driver's licenses and other forms of identification.
Investigators said the trooper stopped a speeding car on Interstate 29 in Holt County and tried to arrest the driver, who appeared intoxicated. The patrol says the man went toward his vehicle and tried to drive away.
The trooper tried a spray to stop the man, who continued to resist. The patrol says during the struggle, the trooper fired his weapon and fatally shot the man.
An investigation continues.
