7-26-2010 Missouri:

SHELBYVILLE, Mo. -- A Waverly, Ill., man who was the subject of a manhunt after a Friday morning shooting in Shelby County was found dead Sunday in his SUV of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Patrick J. McIntire, 41, was being sought in connection with a shooting on Mo. 15 north of Bethel that left a woman described as a former girlfriend injured. McIntire was a registered child sex offender, police said.

The Shelby County Sheriff's Department reports that deputies received a tip at 2:35 p.m. Sunday of a white Ford Explorer parked in a wooded lot off County Road 179. When deputies arrived, they found McIntire's body inside.

Shelby County Coroner Ralph Eagan pronounced McIntire dead at 3:40 p.m., and ruled the man died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The victim was taken to Samaritan Hospital in Macon for treatment after the shooting at 11:39 a.m. Friday. No report on her condition has been available, and police have not released further details of the incident. ..Source.. by Herald Wig Staff
