MONROE CITY, Mo. (WGEM) -

The Monroe City police officer shot Wednesday night by a man accused of shooting two other people had serious injuries, the police chief stated in a news release.

Chief Darren Freidank states one of his police officers was shot while on duty and was being treated Thursday. Marion County Sheriff Jimmy Shinn previously told WGEM News the officer pulled over a vehicle Timothy Brokes was driving when Brokes shot him. The officer shot Brokes, and Brokes was taken into custody.

Both were taken to hospitals for treatment.

Freidank states Brokes was treated at a local hospital and taken to Adams County Jail, where he was held on a $100,000 cash-only bond issued by Ralls County Associate Circuit Judge David Mobley. Brokes appeared before a judge Thursday morning, where he signed extradition papers, the circuit clerk's office told WGEM News. Shinn says he was then taken back to Marion County jail.

Freidank did not release the name of the officer.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol's Division of Drug and Crime Control is investigating.

The Monroe City Police Department says no interviews will be conducted with media Thursday. No other information was released.

Brokes is accused of shooting Aaron Gauch on a Marion County road before driving into Hannibal and fatally shooting Gauch's wife, Brittany Gauch. A two-year-old child was found in the home with the woman's body when police arrived. Gauch was being treated at a hospital for his injuries.

Shinn said June Smith was with Brokes by choice, though initially, he didn't know whether or not she had been kidnapped or if she was with him willingly. An endangered person advisory had been issued for Smith Wednesday afternoon. Smith was taken into custody after the officer-involved shooting.

Shinn says Smith faces charges in Monroe County for first-degree assault of a law enforcement officer and fleeing to avoid arrest.
