KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Authorities say Clinton, Mo Officer Christopher Ryan Morton, who was killed in a shooting that wounded two other officers, served with "distinction."

Morton was a full-time officer from February 2015 through January 2017, when he became a reserve officer. He returned to full-time duty last September, one month after another officer was fatally shot.

He was honored at a Royals game in June 2014, and presented Jeremy Guthrie with a US flag that was flown during his deployment. See the 'our heroes' salute from 2014 in the video above.
