Tip Leads Authorities to Shooting Suspect

Sept. 5 - Here's a 48 News update on the search for the man accused of shooting two Montgomery police officers.

Authorities believe they've found him. Officers in Fenton, Missouri say Neil Perkins shot himself in his motel room Wednesday, after an 8-hour standoff.

FBI agents surrounded the motel yesterday afternoon after they received a tip that he was staying there.
