One man’s in the hospital after an officer-involved shooting just east of Lake of the Ozarks.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Twitter account is reporting the Division of Drug and Crime Control is now involved in the investigation.

The Tweet says the Miller County Sheriff’s Office sent deputies to a home near Saint Anthony on a report of a domestic dispute.

When deputies arrived, investigators say a 35-year-old man grabbed a rifle, and that’s when one deputy shot the man with his gun.

The report shows the man was flown to an area hospital, but nothing else is known right now.
