Deputies Shoot, Kill Eugene Man

April 22, 2006 - Posted at 12:40 p.m. CST

JACKSONVILLE, Mo. (AP) _ The highway patrol is investigating

after two Randolph County deputies shot and killed a Eugene man.

It happened Thursday near U-S 63 in Jacksonville as the deputies

were checking a suspicious parked car. They say they fired after a

man got out of the vehicle and began shooting at them.

The man was struck twice in the chest and died a short time

later. He was identified as 36-year-old Jeffrey Mesecher.

A patrol spokesman says neither of the deputies was injured.

They both are on administrative leave pending results of the

investigation.

A criminal records check shows Mesecher faced drug possession

charges as well as misdemeanor traffic charges, including driving

while his license was revoked and failing to keep adequate records

as a truck driver.
