Folks at Casey's were talking yesterday about a kidnapping/shooting of the owner(s) at The Rib Shack here in town. Does anyone have any authoritative info about this? I enjoy eating there and the folks there are super nice to my family and we really enjoy the food. If this information is true please join me in praying for all involved and I REALLY hope this news is NOT true. Only correct information please. On a personal note to Gravedigger....My wife thinks that you are the Life of topix and constantly gets a chuckle from your comments. She really appreciates your rude, hardcore, "F" it! style freedom of speech. Im sure you'll use the word "a@#hole" at least once if you respond to this question but I did want to thank you for keeping this forum interesting, humorous and helping take the edge off the stress of everyday life/pressures.

Lets get the story straight first.
Rib Shed?
Fish Shack?
There is no Rib Shack in West Plains. Where is the one you are talking about?
The BBQ place north of town towards Pomona. I really hope this story is not true. I dont know owners personally but I do not ever forget kindness and excellent customer service.

I have searched the internet and I am not finding any info on that. I too am crazy about their food. I do know that I tried to get dinner there Sunday and they weren't open like they normally are. I thought that it may have been because they were deer hunting.
If people were talking about it yesterday at Casey's then surely if there were any truth to it a person would be able to find info on it by now.

I just want to let everyone know, that Adam is very much alive. Yes he was shot, but he didn't shoot himself. He is the one who called 911, and he was airlifted to Springfield. He is going to live, and he is talking. This is still under investigation, and I know this for a fact. I just talked to the other co-owner Scotty, and he said no one knows except the Sherriff dept. and the Highway patrol. Nothing has been in the paper, and it won't be until, they are finished with the investigation. So all rumors can stop. I don't live there, but I am close friends with both of these guys, so I know what I am talking about.

Just met him Saturday night. This is so sad. He was a very nice, friendly person. My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this terribly sad time.

Praise God! Thank you so much EZZTOP for this information. I dont really know why Im so worked up about this because I do not personally know the owners. I just remember and appreciate his/hers/their kindness and excellent quality food & service. I abhor violence altogether but especially when good people are hurt.

Thank you EZZTOP for the correct info! Prayers for the family. Adam loves and is much loved by his boys. Think about it before posting something so thoughtless and vicious. And FYI - the Highway Patrol will investigate when requested or warranted by the situation. More to come as Adam is recovering.

The investigation is on going, sucide has NOT been determined. Adam is at Cox in Springfield.

Yes, HIPO will investigate when it involves local law enforcement, or when requested by local law enforcement. Neither in this case applies.
This is off topic. You need to brush up on the way law enforcement works around here. You get in a car accident in the county on a highway and guess who investigates. The Highway Patrol. The county merely stays at the scene and gathers preliminary info until the patrol arrives. Same with a serious accident in the city. The highway patrol investigates it. I cannot think of a case of a shooting in this town/county that the highway patrol did not step in and investigate in cooperation with the city/county. They are also generally involved in the larger drug busts. That is just the way it goes....our city and county are desperately underfunded and under staffed. Now lets move on...this is a non issue. Everyone cares about the person who was shot.

it dont have anything to do with the food. if you dont like the food you can go to mcdonald's and get you something on the dollar menu. i love their food and it is a very clean place. this is about a good guy that is someone's dad,child,brother and friend! i am praying for him and his family. i am also praying for his coworkers. i am sure it is tough for them.

We are talking about a man who was shot and you have the nerve to post something so critical? Ok..you have this right to your opinion, but it is far from collective criticism. Dig deep for your moral sensitivity. Shame on you.

the highway patrol would not be investigating. City or county but not state. Word from the county is he was arrested for drunk by the city, released in the morning, and next thing was a phone call about a possible suicide.
Sounds like to me that you need to read up on the law. The Highway Patrol, can and does investigate anything that involves a crime, wreck, or they can even go into a subdivision and investigate something. Do you think they just do highway work? You didn't get word from the County, nor do you know that he was arrested for drunk driving, all you can post is hear say, and that is dangerous. There is no (quote) to it, you need to just stay quite.

FACTUALLY - both apply to this situation. More to follow..
