Motive Unknown for Shooting in Gravois Mills
One person is in custody and another is recovering after a shooting in Gravois Mills. The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office says on Sunday they were called to the report of a shooting on Wolf Way off Forest Drive. Deputies found 65-year old Leon Cott on his driveway with a gunshot to the head. He was taken to a local hospital where he is listed in critical but stable condition. A short time later, 29-year old Timothy Stovall of Gravois Mills was arrested at his home. He is charged with assault and felon in possession of firearms. Authorities are hoping to learn more about a motive from Cott once he recovers enough to speak with them. Stovall is being held at the Morgan County Jail on a cash only bond of 500 thousand dollars.
