JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Federal prosecutors have accused two central Missouri people of weapons charges connected to their alleged firing at officers during an Interstate 70 police chase.

Twenty-five-year-old Russell Deane Moore Jr. of Fulton and 24-year-old Victoria Buol of Boonville were charged Thursday in Jefferson City after their arrests.

They’re accused of having a semiautomatic pistol reported stolen Wednesday along with a Jeep and other items from a Columbia home.

Authorities say that when a Boone County sheriff’s deputy saw the Jeep at a Columbia truck stop, that vehicle sped away, with Moore repeatedly shooting at the deputy and other law enforcers.

The chase ended when the Jeep ran out of gas in Calloway County.



Online court records don’t show whether Moore or Buol have an attorney.
