Man shot after pointing gun at law enforcement in Cass County dies from injuries

RAYMORE, Mo. -- An investigation is underway after a officer-involved turned deadly Thursday morning.

Preston Ray Holloway, 27, of Houston, Texas.

Police say it was around 11:30 p.m. when Belton police tried to stop a shooting suspect's red Ford Explorer heading south on I-49.

Two troopers in that area put down stop sticks and flattened his tires. When the suspect's vehicle eventually stopped, the suspect, 27-year-old Preston Ray  Holloway,  got out and pointed a gun at himself before firing shots at passing cars.

Officials say one driver stopped and Holloway carjacked his white GMC Terrain and then headed north on I-49 into Raymore.

Troopers, a Cass County sheriff's deputy and Raymore police chased Holloway into Raymore where the suspect got out of the vehicle near North Dean Avenue and Lucy Webb.

Officials say Holloway then walked away from officers while pointing the gun at his head and also at officers.

Around 11:50 p.m., law enforcement shot Holloway. The 27-year-old is from Houston, Texas. He was taken to Research Hospital with serious injuries but later died.

Holloway was wanted on two felony warrants in Jackson County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime Control is investigating the shooting.
