Midlands Native Killed in the Line of Duty in Montana

Midlands Native Killed in the Line of Duty in Montana

Deputy Mason Moore, who worked for the Broadwater County, Montana Sheriff's Department, was killed Tuesday morning near the town of Three Forks. "My wife Lisa and I offer our honest condolences to the family and friends of Deputy Mason Moore".

"The men and women of the Butte-Silver Bow Law Enforcement Department extend our sincerest condolences to Sheriff Meehan, the Broadwater County Sheriff's Department, and the family of the fallen deputy".

Moore was shot less than 2 miles (3 kilometers) from where Montana Highway Patrol Trooper David DeLaittre was killed near Three Forks in December 2010.

Moore is from Summerton, South Carolina and worked for the Clarendon County Sheriff's Department from 2007-2011.

Missoula County officials say the driver, 61-year-old Lloyd Barrus, was arrested on suspicion of deliberate homicide. The chase ended before sunrise with the suspects' vehicle driving on its rims, a suspect shot and hospitalized and his father under arrest, officials said. Moore told dispatchers he was stopping a vehicle at about 3 a.m. Tuesday but didn't respond to further communications.

This undated photo provided by the Broadwater County Sheriff's Office shows Deputy Mason Moore, 38. His condition has not been released.

The passenger, later identified as Marshall Barrus, 38, of Belgrade, Montana, got out and shot at officers who returned fire.

A statewide alert was issued for the suspect vehicle and it was spotted near Anaconda, about 80 miles west of where the deputy was found dead, where a pursuit began. Butte-Silver Bow officers continued to pursue the vehicle westbound on I-90 through Deer Lodge County and Powell County and into Granite County.

The passenger was shot and taken to the hospital, and the driver was arrested. The passenger was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound. The vehicle was spike striped at mile marker 162 in Powell County but was able to continue on I-90.

Officers from numerous jurisdictions joined a procession at mid-day Tuesday to escort Moore's body from Three Forks to Billings for an autopsy. The vehicle eventually came to rest just east of rock Creek. It's cruel irony that a law enforcement officer was shot and killed the day after Peace Officers Memorial Day.Tragic incidents like this should serve as a reminder to all of us to be thankful every day for those in uniform who serve and protect our communities. The driver, the shooter's father, was arrested.

Lester said at least one of the suspects fired at pursuing officers with at least one semi-automatic rifle.
