Barton County Sheriff’s office seeks “person of interest” in Liberal shooting
LIBERAL, Mo – A posting on the Barton County Sheriff’s office Facebook page says deputies are currently working a shooting in Liberal, Mo.
No identification has been made of the person or persons shot.
The Sheriff’s office is asking citizens to contact the Sheriff’s Department if you see the individual whose photograph accompanies this story.
The office says he is a “person of interest.” If you know of his whereabouts or have other information, you’re asked to call: (417) 682-5515 or (417) 682-5541.
“[The] subject has not been located at this time,” Barton County Sheriff John Simpson stated in a Facebook posting Saturday morning. “We do believe based on information that we have received he is no longer in the area.

Simpson advises that the person of interest may be armed and anyone spotting him should contact law enforcement rather than taking action personally.
