NEW MADRID, MO (KFVS) -

Several officers are on the scene Saturday night near at the 56 mile marker off Interstate 55 south of the Matthews exit.

According to Trooper Clark Parrott who is on the scene, the trooper was shot once in the upper chest.

He was airlifted to a Cape Girardeau hospital with serious injuries.

Parrott confirmed that the trooper gave crews a thumbs up as he was being loaded into the helicopter.

Authorities say the shooting happened during a routine traffic stop.

Trooper Parrott says one of the suspects was shot and killed, and another was shot and wounded. That individual was taken to the hospital.

The other two individuals are now in police custody.
