FARMINGTON, Mo. (AP) — A 29-year-old man shot by police in the eastern Missouri town of Farmington is now facing multiple charges.

The Park Hills Daily Journal reports that Cody Crayton of Park Hills is charged with assault, armed criminal action, burglary and other crimes. He is jailed on $500,000 bond and does not yet have an attorney.
