Officials say Morton served with distinction for the citizens of Clinton as a full-time police officer from February 2015 to January 2017.
A man suspected of fatally shooting one Missouri officer and wounding two others refused to let officers tend to the dying officer for hours.
Clinton, with about 8,800 residents, is about 70 miles (110 kilometers) east of Kansas City. Two others were in stable condition and being treated for gunshot wounds - one in the arm and the other in the shoulder. A woman who was at the home was taken into custody.
Rep. Blaine Leutkemeyer of Missouri tweeted, "Saddened to hear the news of Clinton Police OfficerChristopher Ryan Morton's death".
The officer killed in the line of duty Tuesday evening in Clinton is 30-year-old Christopher Ryan Morton.
At the time of the crossfire, the officers are sure the suspect was inside, but since it is still early on in the investigation, they're not sure how many others might have been in the house.
Authorities say a man shot and killed a police officer and wounded two others at a home in Missouri. The patrol says a SWAT team entered the home at 12:10 a.m. Wednesday but found the suspect dead.
Here's what we know so far: Sgt. Bill Lowe with the Highway Patrol said a call came in with women screaming in the background a little after 9 p.m.
A minute and a half later, dispatchers are heard repeatedly asking Morton to "talk to us" and "stay with us".
Patrol information states the suspect began firing at the officers, killing Morton while also injuring officers Nathan Bettencourt and Nicholas Kasper.
After walking in, the suspect, James E. Waters, 37, started shooting at the officers, Lowe said.
Morton, a twice-deployed veteran who joined the Army National Guard in 2005, took a temporary break from full-time policing a year ago to take a job with Veterans Affairs in the Kansas City area, although he remained a reserve officer in Clinton. He pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder last month.
The alleged killer, Ian McCarthy, drove off, crashed his vehicle, and fled on foot before he was arrested two days later.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against McCarthy.
The two wounded officers eventually made it out of the house, but Waters barricaded himself inside and exchanged gunfire with the dozens of officers who eventually arrived, The Kansas City Star reported. He had recently returned to full-time duty to replace a fallen officer. Sgt. Lowe called the incident a tragic event for the city of Clinton and its police department.
