# # #

The McDonald Co Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal shooting. 

58-year old Jimmy Tillery was shot multiple times by his ex-wife's boyfriend according to the sheriff's office.

Court documents state Tillery drove to his ex-wife's home in Washburn, Mo wanting to speak with her. 

There is a restraining order against Tillery from his ex-wife and her current boyfriend Matthew Bowman. 

A neighbor at the scene said after Tillery initially moved out of his ex-wife's home, his ex blocked the driveway with a parked car and posted "no trespassing" signs. 

The night of the shooting, Bowman retrieved a rifle from the bedroom and met Tillery, who was sitting in his truck on the front lawn refusing to leave. 

According to the report, the 39-year old Bowman admitted to shooting Jimmy Tillery three to four times in the chest and arm while Tillery was still in the truck. 

Bowman was arrested at the scene.

Bowman has been charged with second degree murder and armed criminal action.
