PINEVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Authorities have identified the person killed in a southwest Missouri home-invasion as a 35-year-old man.

The Joplin Globe (https://bit.ly/1ru8g5E ) reports that Rodney Frederick died Wednesday night when three people broke into a home near the town of Jane. The McDonald County Sheriff’s Department says a woman and a young boy were tied up before Frederick was shot. Witnesses said two of the suspects wore masks.

The sheriff’s department says a suspect had been taken into custody. But no charges had been filed in McDonald County Circuit Court in connection with the murder by the time the courthouse closed on Friday afternoon.
