Louisville, Neb., shooting suspect arrested in Missouri

Steven Harrod

A shooting suspect from Louisville, Neb., who eluded authorities for nearly a week was apprehended Sunday evening in southwest Missouri, the U.S. Marshals Service there said.

Law enforcement officers found Steven I. Harrod, 64, housed in a shedlike building in a rural area outside Goodman, Mo., said an official with the Marshals Service in Springfield, Mo.

Harrod was arrested without incident. Officials from the Missouri State Highway Patrol's SWAT team, the U.S. Marshals Service in Nebraska and the Cass County Sheriff's Office helped in his capture.

Harrod had been charged with first-degree assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony after 32-year-old Michael A. Green was shot in the face last Monday at the Louisville house where the two lived. Harrod was a landlord to Green and his girlfriend.

Last week, Green was considered in extremely critical condition at Creighton University Medical Center. A spokesman at the hospital declined to release Green's condition Sunday night. The U.S. Marshals official said Green was expected to survive.

Harrod was being held in the McDonald County Jail in Missouri on Sunday night.
