Coroner's inquest into shooting death tonight
Watch video of Cape Girardeau police Sgt. Barry Hovis discussing the shooting the day after it happened by clicking here.
A coroner's inquest into the shooting death of 23-year-old Zachary Snyder will be held at 6 p.m. today at the Cape Girardeau Common Pleas Courthouse.
Snyder was shot and killed Feb. 14 when a fugitive apprehension investigator with the Missouri Department of Corrections attempted to serve a warrant for his arrest on parole violation. The shooting occurred in the parking lot of an apartment complex at 2857 Themis St. Twelve witnesses will be called to testify at the inquest.
The inquest will shed light on the circumstances of the shooting and hopefully determine whether or not the shooting was justified.
